Scuba notes for April 2010
May 1st, 2010
Here’s a short wrap-up of notable scuba stories from April 2010.
Octopus by PacificKlaus
Precision Diving blog had an interesting article about diving under different measurement systems: Metric vs Imperial: Which is the Best for Scuba Diving.
Jaunted recently ran a review of dive spot Mermet Springs in Illinois, which features underwater attractions including a dive-through Boeing 727, a school bus, and an ambulance. Read more about this strange scuba spot.
In New Zealand, an octopus grabbed a scuba diver’s digital camera while the diver was taking video. The diver managed to get the camera back so the whole order was caught on tape.
The Gulf Coast oil spill disaster is still unfolding. Besides sealife, the spill is disastrous for other wildlife, including migratory and nesting birds. The Drinking Bird’s excellent blog post Complete and Utter Disaster is a brilliant commentary on the spill from a birder’s perspective.
