What happens the pressure when you scuba dive?

Due to the mass of the water above you, as you descend in to the water, the pressure increases at about 1 bar for every 10m. This is why if you have been in a deep swimming pool you can sometimes feel pressure on your ears if you swim to the bottom of the pool. The same is true in SCUBA diving but the pressure involved can get much larger. Of course there are ways in which the SCUBA diving kit and the diver themselves can deal with the pressure (such as ear-clearing to prevent barotrauma)
