underwater science

Ear clearing or clearing the ears is any of various maneuvers to equalize the pressure in the middle ear with the outside pressure, by letting air enter along the Eustachian tubes, as this does not always happen automatically when the pressure in the middle ear is lower than the outside pressure.


If you don't wear enough weight, you will be "positively buoyant" and find that it is difficult or impossible to dive underwater. You can't sink or dive if you are positively buoyant.

If you wear too much weight you will be "negatively buoyant" which will make it a struggle for you to swim and rest easily on the surface.

getting in and out of the water
