How do we get samples from the deep sea?
« on: 29/03/2011 17:11:43 »
@jimi_kate asked the Naked Scientists:

How are living samples retrieved from the ocean bottom kept in natural conditions (t, light and P)?

What do you think?

You leave them there, other wise the conditions are not natural.

I assume in some kind of containment boxy thing with no light or limited light, and alot of pressure, and one of those little diver men you always see(you know with the treasure chest).
