So you can wipe that smug look off your face now.
The pressure of seawater increases at a rate of about 1 atmosphere per 32 feet (33 feet in fresh water), give or take.
The claim made in this image is that 20,000 ft = 1,100+ atmospheres. That is incorrect. 625 would be more accurate.
The pressure at the bottom of the challenger deep is over a thousand atmospheres, according to the wikipedia, and basic arithmetic.
So, its a nice illustration, but factually incorrect.
Like clover field?
deep sea gigantism..I remember when the waves would come in and if you dig fast enough you can grab one of those little guys and watch him scurry around, these are over a foot long..what the hell else could be down there and grow even bigger!?
They are finding ways to build things like robotic subs they can control in the extreme depths. We actually do have pictures of the Abyssal Zone, I`m not positive on lower than that.The biggest fear is send a human down because a sub would get crushed like a tin can, but from some research I did a year or two ago they have been working on subs or other robotic devices to send down to those depths. One of the biggest problems though is the ocean`s current. It`s hard to have things land where you want them to as they drift.
perhaps you should stop over-analysing a drawing, and take away from this what was intended - i.e. the Mariana trench is flipping deep.
The blue whale is drawn too small - I make it about 60ft long. It should be almost twice that length.
Dude it takes more than a single puff to get that bombed.
Its a shame they didn`t have the freedive marker on there though. 214 meters, according to my rather basic PADI knowledge that`s 21 atm. Seriously scary stuff.
I bet if you did, it would make your ears pop.
Trench, not a hole. But yeah, you`re right.
But my mind immediately goes to "That would be a great place to dispose of a body."Granted, I`d have to find a way to get myself and the body there. And I would never need such a place. =] But a great place nonetheless.
BTW i tried elongating the word `minddrat` only to relize that it wont censore it so...yeah. Just putting that out their.
I`m still afraid to go in water if I can`t see the bottom.
"In his house at R`lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming."
But perosnally I wouldn`t wanna see down there lol
