One Response to “Undersea Experience – a new multimedia book”

  1. The book is a monument to the great work done by everyone who was involved in the UNDERSEA EAXPLORER projects. The staff, the clients, the researchers, the sponsors. It was such a sad moment when it was anounced that the operation of UE has ceased.
    Hopefully there will be a successor to take the baton and continue the work.
