    An increasing world population means more strain on resources, and requires increasingly innovative solutions. Japanese firm Shimizu has come up with one such idea. Ocean Spiral is an underwater city that seeks to make use of the ocean's rich resources. Shimizu is no stranger to moonshot ideas. It has previously proposed a ring of solar panels around the moon's equator to generate electricity for Earth and a self-sufficient, carbon-negative floating city in the Pacific Ocean. Its most recent idea, however, is more similar to Phil Pauley's Sub-Biosphere 2 self-sustainable underwater habitat. Shimizu says the basis for the concept is rooted in the huge potential of the deep sea and of the cycles that link in with the air, sea surface, and seafloor.

Oceans cover 70 percent of the earth's surface, but only a fraction of the undersea world has been explored. On this episode of TechKnow, Phil Torres joins a team of scientists on a special expedition to explore and uncover the mysteries at the bottom of the ocean floor. "What we are doing is similar to astronauts and planetary scientists just trying to study life on another planet," says Beth Orcutt, a senior research scientist. The journey begins in Costa Rica aboard the R/V Atlantis, a research vessel operated by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. From there, Phil gets the chance to take a dive with Alvin, a deep-water submersible capable of taking explorers down to 6,000 metres (20,000 feet) under the sea. Commissioned in 1964, Alvin has a celebrated history, locating an unexploded hydrogen bomb off the coast of Spain and exploring the famous RMS Titanic in the 1980s. Alvin and its first female pilot, Cindy Van Dover, were the first to discover hydrothermal vents, which are underwater springs where plumes of black smoke and water pour out from underneath the earth's crust. The vents were inhabited by previously unknown organisms that thrived in the absence of sunlight. After 40 years of exploration, Alvin got a high-tech upgrade. The storied submersible is now outfitted with high-resolution cameras to provide a 245-degree viewing field and a robotic arm that scientists can use to pull samples of rock and ocean life to then study back on land. But scientists are not the only ones interested in the ocean. These days the new gold rush is not in the hills, it is in the deep sea. For thousands of years miners have been exploiting the earth in search of precious metals. As resources on dry land are depleted, now the search for new sources of metals and minerals is heading underwater. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's national ocean service estimates that there is more than $150tn in gold waiting to be mined from the floor of the world's oceans. "The industry is moving very, very fast. They have far more financial resources than the scientific community," says Cindy Van Dover, Alvin's first female pilot and Duke University Oceanography Professor. Seabed mining is still in the planning stages, but Nautilus Minerals, a Canadian mining company, says it has the technology and the contracts in place with the island nation of Papua New Guinea to start mining in its waters in about two years.

The ocean is a deeply mystical , beautifully breathtaking, perfect place. But it does come with some downsides. Here are 12 Magnificent Deep Water Facts Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 5.Wow, That’s Hot Because the seafloor lies on top of the layer in the Earth’s crust where magma is made, certain parts of it contain hydrothermal vents. Such vents are a scientific result of lava erupting from the sea floor, and they are typically found near underwater volcanoes. These vents aren’t like those of your typical jacuzzi tub vents- they can reach temperatures up to six hundred and sixty two degrees high- enough to melt led. These could create problems for deep water explorers, but oceanographers are able to get an idea of where the vents are located through the hot water plumes that arise into the sea. While it’s wondrous to think about these vents, it’s also fascinating to know that they play a part in keeping the ocean’s ecosystem healthy. The high temperatures of the water aid in removing chemical compounds from the water, like magnesium and sulfate. 4. Marine Mining An exciting type of robot has been developed in order to mine precious metals like gold, copper, manganese, and others from the bottom of the sea floor. There are both positive and negative effects to these seafloor mining robots, developed by Canadian Mining firm Nautilus Minerals. On the plus side, they could prevent us from continuing to deplete our natural resources and lead us to the development of more eco friendly technology. However, there is rising concern that they will disrupt ecosystems of the ocean. These things will definitely have no problem sinking to the ground, as they are reportedly 200 tons each and the size of a “small house”. Things like population growth have led analysts to believe that human society will have a vastly greater need for metals in future years, but environmentalists are fervently against it. Some scientists have even raised concerns that the mining vehicles may accidentally upturn dangerous deep sea floor sediments , and that harmful chemicals could end up in the waves of populated beaches. They aren’t set to launch until 2019, so if you are in favor or in protest, speak now or forever hold your peace! 3.Gold Rush Maybe the idea of mining at the bottom of the ocean isn’t such a bad idea after all. Research by the National Ocean Service may just hold more than twenty million tons of dissolved and undissolved gold. They added that if all the gold in the world’s oceans was successfully mined, every one would have nine whole pounds of gold. That seems pretty insane, but it may not be worth it. The gold is so diluted that for every litre of seawater, there is thirteen billionths of gold in it. Pretty tiny, wouldn’t you agree? Miners would have to travel two miles underwater, and on top of that, dig even deeper into the rocks of the ocean floor. 2.Embrace the Darkness Because the light of the sun can “only penetrate about three hundred thirty feet” into the surface of the ocean, much of the remains in total darkness. And, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, sunlight can only travel down as deep as six hundred feet. As a result, our twelve thousand and four hundred feet deep oceans are in a state of sort of terrifying darkness. As in, there are “definitely no light bulbs or candles to light down there darkness”. Which basically means that most of our planet is actually dark all of the time. One of the darkest zones of the ocean is the aphotic, of “midnight” zone. It lies only three thousand two hundred and eighty feet below sea level, which really doesn’t seem like that much, because it’s around equal to a sixth of a mile. We hope you’ve enjoyed- swimming- around in all this ocean knowledge, but we really enjoy your comments! Here are just a few from today. We’ll keep -fishing- for them…. 1.Watch Out For That Water The ocean is a deeply mystical , beautifully breathtaking, perfect place. But it does come with some downsides. Every year, tons and tons of human waste gets dumped into the ocean. Containments of this waste range anywhere from empty bottles to infected needles-ew! What’s more, is that cruise ships are responsible for dumping over one BILLION gallons of sewage into the ocean every year. The fact of the matter is, is that the ocean is FILLED with millions of disease causing microbes and bacteria. How much bacteria, may you ask? Er, just a tinge- if you consider 10 to 100 million viruses per teaspoon of ocean water a tinge. Although the ocean’s ecosystem has a natural way of cleansing itself, studies have shown more and more disease causing agents are in our Earth’s water. Such things can contaminate fish, which can eventually harm humans if consumed. The point is, we should all work to keep our oceans clean and safe!

Nobody knows where it begins - The ‘deep-sea’ is a contested term, lacking a single exact definition. For some it refers to the any part of the ocean where scary, odd and downright bizarre creatures live. For others, it’s a descriptive definition of specific ocean depths. Credit: http://linkbun.ch/04fay - Deep sea creatures are purposefully incredibly diverse. - Species from the deep may look like they’ve evolved in strange ways just to freak us out, but in fact they’ve evolved that way for specific survival purposes. For instance, to take advantage of the lack of light, most animals are transparent or red, a colour which few creatures can detect and is camouflaging in the darkness. Credit: http://linkbun.ch/04f2h - Exploring the deep is tremendously testing - An obvious fact, but one you probably haven’t seriously thought about. Part of the reason why it’s taken us so long to explore is because only recently have we created new generations of incredibly sophisticated underwater vehicles that are able to venture so deep. Credit: http://linkbun.ch/04f2i - Only three people have ever been to the deep sea - Due to the previously mentioned extremities, the deep sea may be the final frontier of exploration. Many more people have then been into space than to the deep sea. Like seriously, a loaaad more. Over 500 people have been into space, whereas only 3 people have ever ventured over 1000 fathoms into the depth of our oceans. Credit: http://linkbun.ch/04f2j - New species are being discovered daily - Since it’s largely unexplored, each time a vehicle is sent into the deep, it’s highly likely to unearth a new discovery. Over a recent year-long period the World Register of Marine Species reported discovering 1451 new marine species, of which many were found to be from the deep sea. Credit: http://linkbun.ch/04f2k - It’s a giant’s playground - The term Deep-sea gigantism exists in zoology for a reason. It refers to the tendency for deep-sea dwelling animals to be larger in size than their shallower-water relatives. We're not sure whether it comes about as a result of adaptation for scarce resources, greater pressure, or for other reasons. Credit: http://linkbun.ch/04f2l - Some amazing ecosystems exist on the ocean floor - In 1977 a deep-sea research expedition made history as they found hydrothermal vents releasing mineral rich water at the bottom of the ocean. Credit: http://linkbun.ch/04f2m - Geothermal vents aren’t the only thriving ecosystems on the ocean floor - Lush Deep-water coral gardens of various sizes, colours and shapes are able to survive in the Icy cold and extremely dim waters of up to 6000m (20,000 ft) below the ocean’s surface. In fact, scientists have discovered nearly as many species of deep-sea corals as shallow-water species. Unlike shallow-water corals, deep-sea corals don’t need sunlight but rather obtain the energy and nutrients they need to survive by trapping tiny organisms in passing currents.

On the face of it, it’s pretty similar to the empty expanses of outer space, but in space you can see everything using telescopes.

The following are recordings taken by the United States Navy likely around the 1950's and 60's aboard a submarine. These were later declassified as sonar technology was passed on to civilian scientific communities such as NOAA in the late 1970's. The video is made up of four sound categories these are: 1) Biologic - Whales, fish 2) Unidentified - Unidentified animal or animal-like sound (Although these may now have been identified today. Can you tell?) 3) Nature - Earthquakes, weather 4) Artificial - Ships and submarines Credit goes to http://www.hnsa.org/resources/historic-naval-sound-and-video/ for the sound clips and are used under personal/educational purposes.

An increasing world population means more strain on resources, and requires increasingly innovative solutions. Japanese firm Shimizu has come up with one such idea. Ocean Spiral is an underwater city that seeks to make use of the ocean's rich resources. Shimizu is no stranger to moonshot ideas. It has previously proposed a ring of solar panels around the moon's equator to generate electricity for Earth and a self-sufficient, carbon-negative floating city in the Pacific Ocean. Its most recent idea, however, is more similar to Phil Pauley's Sub-Biosphere 2 self-sustainable underwater habitat. Shimizu says the basis for the concept is rooted in the huge potential of the deep sea and of the cycles that link in with the air, sea surface, and seafloor. The company outlines five main reasons for developing the project in the deep sea: there is potential for sourcing seafood, producing desalinated water, generating energy, treating carbon dioxide and extracting resources from the ocean and the seafloor. The Ocean Spiral takes the form of a huge sphere known as the "Blue Garden." It's 500 m (1,640 ft) in diameter, floating for the most part just below the surface, but with its very top breaching the surface. This will contain 75 floors with spaces allocated for hospitality, residential, commercial and research purposes. It is expected to accommodate a population of 5,000, with 4,000 permanent residents and 1,000 visitors. Access to the Blue Garden and the Ocean Spiral is through the "grand entrance" on the water's surface. The Blue Garden itself contains a huge atrium, hotel suites, an observation gondola, a sea park and a leisure and retail plaza. Temperature, humidity and oxygen levels are controlled inside. Below the Blue Garden is a spiral that reaches 3-4 km (1.9-2.5 mi) to an "Earth Factory" on the sea-bed. The spiral accommodates the functions required for the Ocean Spiral complex to operate in the deep sea. Power is generated via ocean thermal energy conversion, food is produced via deep sea aquaculture, and water is desalinated. A monitoring facility is also located here and so too a port at which submarines can dock. The Earth Factory is anchored to the sea-bed and is connected to similar satellite facilities via transport tunnels. These "factories" are used to store, treat and reuse carbon dioxide, as well as to cultivate and develop deep sea resources. The basis for the construction of the Ocean Spiral is the Blue Garden's sphere shape. This was chosen to provide strength against the external water pressure. The sphere is further reinforced by a central internal tower. A frame for the sphere and its tower will be constructed using a resin concrete. The frame will be covered using triangular acrylic sheets measuring 50 m (164 ft) along the side, and reinforced using semi-transparent fiberglass cross-bracing ribs. All construction is planned to take place on the surface of the ocean. Shimizu notes that the materials used and processes for construction are likely to be refined as the project moves forward, and through the ongoing development of technology. The firm reportedly believes the project will cost in the region of ¥3 trillion (US$25.5 billion) and could be completed within 15 years.
