Deep Ocean

  1. 1. Deep Ocean: Extreme Environment By: Jim Fields
  2. 2. Mariana Trench <ul><li>Deepest part of the ocean and deepest part of the earth 11,033 meters Deep (36,201 feet) </li></ul>
  3. 3. Deep Ocean Facts <ul><li>Water Temperature 2-4 degrees Celsius </li></ul><ul><li>Pressure ranges 200-600 atm </li></ul>
  4. 4. Human Limitations <ul><li>14.7 PSI ( pounds per square inch) a human weighs </li></ul><ul><li>Under water every 33 feet traveled another atmosphere is felt by the human diver (14.7 PSI) </li></ul><ul><li>For example, 66 ft = 44.1 PSI </li></ul><ul><li>Divers can withstand up to 3-4 atmospheres of pressure </li></ul>
  5. 5. Body Systems Affected <ul><li>Respiratory </li></ul><ul><li>Muscular </li></ul><ul><li>Nervous </li></ul>
  6. 6. Respiratory System <ul><li>Nitrogen Narcosis is experienced when divers with oxygen tanks dive lower than 160 meters </li></ul><ul><li>Decompression sickness, tremors, myoclonic jerking and vomiting </li></ul>
  7. 7. Muscular <ul><li>Joints in the body are too compressed to move after 300 meters. </li></ul><ul><li>Too much pressure causes the muscular system to shut down </li></ul>
  8. 8. Nervous <ul><li>Nitrogen and Oxygen levels underwater can be toxic leading to tremors and or seizures underwater </li></ul>
  9. 9. Adaptations of Human Body <ul><li>The Buoyancy of the human body work to keep the head and body afloat to prevent drowning </li></ul><ul><li>The body shivers to maintain homeostasis the muscles move rapidly to generate heat </li></ul><ul><li>Enlarged eyes, Expandable Stomach absence of Jaw </li></ul>
  10. 10. Proper Equipment <ul><li>Deep sea Submarines </li></ul><ul><li>Wet suit, oxygen tank, Scuba gear </li></ul>
