How do wetsuits keep divers warm?

Wetsuits are typically made out of an insulating, rubber-like substance called neoprene and they are designed to fit snuggly (but not too tight). When a diver first jumps into the ocean, a small amount of water will seep in and form a layer of water between the diver's skin and the neoprene wetsuit. The diver's body will warm that water to nearly body-temperature. Because the wetsuit fits snuggly, that water does not circulate with the ocean water, it stays against the skin forming a warm insulating layer between the diver and the ocean. It should be noted that wetsuits are not appropriate for diving in all climates as they will only keep a diver so warm. Another kind of suit called a Dry Suit is worn for dives in very cold water, and these suits are much warmer. The use of dry suits requires additional training, however, to learn how to handle the additional buoyancy of the air in the suit.
