Diving schools can vary in what scuba equipment they require their students to buy. Buckeye Scuba Diving School in Cleveland, Ohio for example sells its own scuba equipment.
Many different types of marine life you will expirence if you go scuba diving. It really depends what part of the world you go scuba diving in. Which will effect the type of things you see.
Its not really scuba diving but its considered scuba diving. Also known as the hookah system. its when you have a gas powered motor pumping fresh air to the person or person's diving below, there can be up to four people diving off of one hookah system. the benefit of this system is that there is no decompression time and you can be underwater pretty much all day if someone fills the gas tank on the engine pumping air. but you are kinda tied down to something so i don't think its true scuba diving.
No, you don't need a certain body type to scuba dive. Because you use flippers to SCUBA dive, you can be a very lousy swimmer and learn to SCUBA dive. You may look stupid with a very tight wet suit during scuba diving, but you can dive. When I got certified, I learned that you have a very slightly higher chance of the Bends during scuba diving, but this is a small percentage. The pros of scuba diving outweigh the cons.
Professional Diving is a type of diving where the divers are paid for their work. Recreational diving or sport diving is a type of diving that uses SCUBA equipment for the purpose of leisure and enjoyment. Military, navy, rescue and police diving courses need to be taken per your division or location. Technical and scientific diving is mainly for research and exploration.
Cave diving is a particularly risky type of diving using specialized SCUBA equipment to explore underwater caves.
recreational diving is usually done with 3000 psi of air in a certified SCUBA tank
SCUBA diving and snorkeling.
The types of gas that a scuba diver can use are nitrox gas and pressurized, filtered air. These are the gases that they can use. The most frequently used gas for recreational diving is filtered air, but nitrox is used for tech diving, and for deep depth diving.
No. Scuba refers to any form of Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus. An aqualung is a type of scuba equipment, but a rebreather is also technically scuba equipment, as would any other self contained underwater diving rig. However, surface supplied diving is not regarded as scuba.In common terms "scuba equipment" is often used as a generic term for diving equipment, so as to include non-breathing apparatus, like a diver's mask or fins.
There are a wide range of different fins available for scuba diving. Other than dive fins, these include fins such as snorkel fins, paddle fins and split fins.
The best answer is probably no. Safe scuba diving relies heavily on a knowledge of physics, gas laws and even physiology. Since it generally takes place in the ocean, it often involves marine biology. In that respect scuba is far more reliant on science than most other activities. Generally, though, scuba is a recreational activity for most divers and a vocation for others.
When shooting film underwater, such as in a scuba diving expedition, the brand of electronics or type of camcorder you are using that is the most important piece of equipment. The camcorder housing, which prevents the camcorder from getting wet, is essential. Housings are available from Gates Underwater Products or Amphibico.
There are a few items required for scooba diving. A snorkle with breathing mask and goggles, a wet suit, an oxygen tank, and flippers are required and there may be more depending on difficulty level.
Yes! Scuba diving is a part of training for astronauts because it helps create a training environment with no-gravity type conditions in which they can practice missions here on earth. The Johnson Space Station in Houston, TX is home to a huge training facility containing a pool used specifically for this "neutral buoyancy" purpose.
When working in the office, oceanographers were the same type of clothing other professionals wear. When working in the ocean, they wear wet suits, diving masks, and SCUBA gear.
This can be a very subjective answer. Everyone will have a personal favorite, but most people tend to lean towards the gear that their instructor uses or recommends. This answer also can depend on the actual equipment involved. I have personal favorite brand for my regulators, but that brand does not make the particular type of BCD that i prefer. Research is your best bet. Talk with as many long time scuba divers as you can, and make sure their equipment is suitable for the environment you will be diving, ie: cold water vs. warm water regulators
Good quality dive equipment can be found in some of the well known dive stores such as Simply Scuba or DiveLife. All equipment must be suitable for the type of diving that will be done.
Diver can be detected by the air bubble they give off if NOT using a closed circuit rebrether. Additionally they can be detected with sonar as well as a hand held depth sonar type detector but at a limited range.
There are quite a few different styles and many variants of each type as people all do things slightly differently. However, the two main styles that I see regularly are you traditional straight legged kick where you are simply kicking as you would to swim backstroke or frontcrawl in the swimming pool and the frog kick which is more like a breaststroke style kick.
ALL types and classes of people are involved in this type of offense. It is not confined to one demographic group.

SCUBA is an acronym for self contained underwater breathing apparatus. the idea of scuba started with people using any type of breathing devise to breathe while swimming underwater, but the most well known creator of scuba is Jacques Cousteau who was apart of the French NAVY. He created the Aqualung in 1942 which was the first device to allow people to swim underwater for many hours. This device is the inspiration for the modern equipment of today.
