This month's lecture "The Science of Breathing Underwater” will be given by Mr. Niles W. Clarke.
Compressed gas diving has many effects on the body. The lung is a focal component as the primary passageway for gases entering and exiting the body. This presentation will consider the role of the respiratory system in diving, both protective and potentially hazardous, as it functions in dynamic pressure environments.
Doors will open at 6:15 p.m. for a pre-event social, and light refreshments will be served. The presentation begins at 7 p.m. and will last approximately 45-55 minutes. A 30-minute question-and-answer session will follow.
Admission to the lecture is free, and no registration is required.
