Diving the Depths

Diving the Depths

Pearl Diver (Free Dive)
Pearl divers of the central Tuamotu Archipelago in French Polynesia dive without extemal air supply. They can dive to depths of more than 39 meters where they collect oysters for up to two minutes.

Emperor Penguin
Emperor penguins dive deeper than any other bird. They hold their breath when they dive and how long they hold their breath depends on how deep they dive and how fast they move.

SCUBA Diver (Aided Dive)
In June 2005 Nuno Gomes set the World's Deepest Open Circuit SCUBA record; independently verified by Guinness World Records. It took Gomes about 20 minutes to reach 318.25 m, and 12 hours to surface.

Bottlenose Dolphin
Bottlenose dolphins usually do not need to dive deep to catch their food however they are capable of diving. Under experimental conditions, one bottlenose dolphin dove to 535 meters.

Beluga Whale
Beluga whales are able to swim both forward and backwards (something few other whales can do). Under experimental conditions a trained beluga whale dove to a depth of 647 meters.

Southern Elephant Seal
Southern elephant seals live in sub-Antarctic and Antarctic waters and are the largest of all seals. The deepest dive recorded by an Elephant Seal is 2388 meters.

Sperm Whale
Sperm Whales are one of the deepest-diving mammals in the world. They dive in search of squid to eat and are believed to be able to dive up to 3000 meters in depth to the ocean floor.

Find cities with similar climate

This map has been created using The Global environmental stratification. The Global environmental stratification (GEnS), based on statistical clustering of bioclimate data (WorldClim). GEnS, consists of 125 strata, which have been aggregated into 18 global environmental zones (labeled A to R) based on the dendrogram.

The Appalachian Mountains, the Scottish Highlands, and the Atlas Mounts in Africa were the same mountain range

The Central Pangean Mountains was a prominent mountain ridge in the central part of the supercontinent Pangaea that extends across the continent from northeast to southwest through the Carboniferous , Permian Triassic periods. The mountains were formed due to a collision within the supercontinents Gondwana and Laurussia during the creation of Pangaea. It was comparable to the present Himalayas at its highest peak during the start of the Permian period. It isn’t easy to assume now that once upon a time that the Scottish Highlands, The Appalachian Mountains, the Ouachita Mountain Range, and the Atlas Mountains in northwestern Africa are the same mountains , once connected as the Central Pangean Mountains.

Human Emotions Visualized

Despite significant diversity in the culture around the globe, humanity's DNA is 99.9 percent alike. There are some characteristics more primary and typical to the human experience than our emotions. Of course, the large spectrum of emotions we can feel can be challenging to verbalize. That's where this splendid visualization by the Junto Institute comes in. This visualization is the newest in an ongoing attempt to categorize the full range of emotions logically. Our knowledge has come a long route since William James suggested 4 primary emotions: fear, grief, love, and rage. These kernel emotions yet form much of the basis for current frameworks. The Junto Institute's visualization above classifies 6 basic emotions: fear, anger, sadness, surprise, joy, love More nuanced descriptions begin from these 6 primary emotions, such as jealousy as a subset of anger and awe-struck as a subset of surprise. As a result, there are 102 second-and third-order emotions placed on this emo
