Abstract

Photograph of a SCUBA diver swimming in front of the porthole window of Hydrolab, an underwater laboratory located on the seafloor which allowed scientists to live and work underwater for extended periods of time. The diver is wearing a diving mask and wetsuit and is breathing through an oxygen regulator connected to an oxgen tank. The photograph is shot through the porthole window, from the inside looking out. A copy of the book "Fishes of the Bahamas and adjacent tropical waters" by James E. Bohlke and Charles C.G. Chaplin is on the interior ledge of the porthole window. At the time of the photograph, Hydrolab was located at a depth of approximately 50 feet in Salt River submarine canyon, St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands.
