From the lookout post at 18.5 m, scientists will observe from far, seabirds, whales, dolphins, turtles and fish hunting.
Divers living in atmospheric pressure can explore the first 50 m beneath the surface.
The analysis of continuous recordings in various frequency bands
will help locate some marine organisms that cannot be seen. It will
also provide a database of sound recordings that does not exist today.
Marine animals themselves can be scout oceanographers for
SeaOrbiter. Indeed divers by fixing micro-tags on all kinds of
animals (squid, fish, jellyfish, mammals …) will collect information
either directly or via a satellite. Therefore migratory animals will
extend the observation range of SeaOrbiter.
Saturation divers will carry out dives at depths of between 10 m et 100 m.
Beyond 150 m up to 1000 m deep, the SeaOrbiter crew
can deploy numbers of subsea exploration devices in the abyss equipped with cameras.
The diving drone capable of descending in the abyss to 6000 m is particularly suited to exploring and mapping the seabed at great depths.
