Air & ground vehicle sounds audible underwater
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Air and land vehicles are clearly audible while diving and it is also quite easy to tell the direction that they are coming from.

In real diving it is generally not possible to hear noises that are being created above the water especially if the noise creator is not physically in the water.

Upvoted, I agree

Totally agree. I haven't got a chance to go SCUBA, but from snorkel depths (1-3m) it's very hard to determine sound direction.

DarkWanderer, can I interest you in another ticket?
