Dive in Action works to reduce underwater impacts of marine debris and prevent trash from entering the ocean in the first place.
– “Santorini Active Volcanic Environment” is an Association situated in Santorini Greece at Cyclades Department and is a Marine Conservation non profit Organisation, based to protecting the local Caldera formations and marine life that directly connected eachother. It works for the increased protection of these via the Santorini Active Volcanic Environment program, that involves profesional scuba divers, members and volunteers.
Technology is enlisted in inspections of the “Dive In Action” Environmental Organization
One of the important actions of environmental actions is inspection.
The first part for the calibration of the pollutant loads, and the environmental conditions for the organization and planning of the following operational action is the inspection of the underwater area.
To upgrade and improve the effectiveness of its actions, the Environmental Organization Dive In Action proceeds to the supply of an underwater remote-controlled vehicle (ROUV) a combination of augmented reality, long-range, and depth.
This development improves the recording process with more data, increases the possibilities in the field with full coverage, dramatically reduces the time in the targeted planning of actions, optimizes the operational capacity, and provides possibilities for the evolution of sampling and analysis of observations.
– We give to the public a beautiful and remarkable recording, to observe together the behavior and especially the look of the marine organism in a very close shot. Something, that can hardly be recorded at the sea bed, but with the calm approach, the patience of Stephanolepis diaspros and the valuable suggestion of the Oceanographer Zinovia Erga and the Marine Biologist Thodoros Kampouris, we succeeded in yesterday’s research at the sea bed of the Santorini Caldera. – You can get a “taste” of the beauty of the movement of a particular marine organism, and observe the movement of the eye of the fish, looking for our place, skillfully looking but with proven fear for the escape route from our attention. #marine_life #underwater_shootings #invasive_species #marine_conservation #Dive_In_Action #Stephanolepis_diaspros #Santorini_Greece
We celebrated World Oceans Day with an awareness action with another underwater cleanup in Nea Kameni of Santorini Volcano. The message for clean oceans is always up to date and awaits human awareness to keep our seas healthy.
“Dive In Action” starts the new year with 2 new programs, based on marine environmental conservation. The structure of the programs is to raise public awareness of marine protection, with the introduction of “Envi-net 2020” and to record the first comparative results in marine observation with “Insight Sea 19/20”.
Parallel activities for environmental research, especially in the region, derived from the habitat (click here for the marine life pictures and information), the migratory species, and the marine responses to climate change. (watch the video) .
It’s difficult to describe an experience if we don’t try it out first. It’s equally strange to explain anything that we can’t taste anywhere else except the bottom of the sea. Swimming and snorkeling are hobbies we do in an environment which combines the atmospheric pressure and the liquid element. But, is this enough to realize the real sense of lack of gravity? Sure not! The benefits of diving experience are.
