Summary
Can you imagine living and working under the sea? It's the reality for some scientists, who inhabit laboratories deep at the bottom of the ocean. Discover the difficulties of setting up an ocean lab and the challenges of supplying equipment and necessities to the workers. Children can read about the conditions scientists live in, from how they breathe to what they eat, and some of the dangerous animals and plants they must avoid. Explore how research conducted under the sea can help with conservation, increase our understanding of climate change, and expand our knowledge of marine life, biodiversity and habitats. It can reveal untapped resources, and unknown eco-systems. Discover how scientists manage their data, and publish it in journals around the world, and see how their findings can affect the way we do things in our everyday lives. Find out about the international science community where and why cutting-edge research is carried out, how it is paid for, and who owns the results
