Diving provides direct access to shallow marine ecosystems, allowing for census and sampling of marine biodiversity, measurements of environmental parameters, and the conduction of experiments.   We operate a highly skilled team of diving scientists, supported by a dedicated facility, equipped with a tank-filling station, small vessels, diver propulsion vehicles, and underwater photographic equipment.  As part of HCMR, the IMBBC participates in the European Scientific Diving Panel, an operational platform to advance underwater scientific excellence and to promote and implement a practical support framework for scientific diving related activities.
