I guess it's a start, even with only five dates! Would anyone really try to claim copyright on such an incomplete work? Better safe I guess! I've added a few more, much still to do. Andrewa 04:02, 22 Aug 2003 (UTC)

Sieur Freminet[edit]

The scuba article makes no mention of Sieur Freminet who this timeline claims originated it. Rmhermen 15:45, Dec 18, 2003 (UTC)

Well a quick google search gives him lots of credit for what is described in this time line, so I guess we should update the scuba article? Stefan 03:05, Dec 19, 2003 (UTC)

Virtually every mention of Sieur Freminet turned up by google notes that his design was unsuccessful and that he died using the dvice. His entry in this timeline says that his device was highly successful. The truth??? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:39, 16 November 2011 (UTC)


Didn't Bauer make 134 dives? --squadfifteen

Didn't Bauer make 134 dives? And, considering the title is "underwater technology", where are references to Deep Jeep, Aluminaut, Alvin, Trieste, and others? --squadfifteen 2/10/05


it has no mentioning of atmospheric diving suit :-(


This article is about a limited aspect of underwater technology. For example it does not mention submarines or sonar. It should be renamed "Timeline of diving Technology" (or expanded to merit the broader title). Thunderbird2 22:30, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

Jules Verne & Twenty Thousand Leagues[edit]

I dont' know why article writer/s was so contemptuous against "exaggerated fiction" of Jules Verne; all the book is "exaggerated" telling about a technology fifty years in advance. I guess without Verne no one remind or know Rouquayrol name & his breathing device.-- (talk) 20:40, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

Seems to be mostly SCUBA[edit]

What about JIMs and JAMs? These are similar in a way to the old fashioned diving helmets, but are full suits so the occupant is at lower pressure than the high pressure surrounding water. Breathing gas, power, heat delivered from the surface, I believe. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:55, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

Do you mean Atmospheric diving suit? It would be bit of a waste to duplicate the information there (as that article is mainly a timeline), but I'll add a see also. --RexxS (talk) 00:13, 20 August 2010 (UTC)
