English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
A diving chamber has two main functions:
  • as a simpler form of submersible vessel to take divers underwater and to provide a temporary base and retrieval system in the depths;
  • as a land or ship-based hyperbaric chamber to artificially reproduce the conditions under the sea (pressures above normal atmospheric pressure) for diving-related and non-diving medical applications such as hyperbaric medicine).
