Half Mile Down

Excerpt

In addition to more than one hundred technical and other contributions, this is the third volume to be published, dealing with oceanographic researches on the life of the waters about Nonsuch, Bermuda. For the past six years these studies have been carried on by Dr. William Beebe and his staff, Mr. John Tee-Van, Miss Gloria Hollister and Miss Jocelyn Crane, of the Department of Tropical Research of the Zoölogical Society.

These expeditions have been financed chiefly by the generosity of Mr. Harrison Williams, the late Mr. Mortimer L. Schiff, the National Geographic Society and the Trustees of the New York Zoölogical Society.

The present volume describes the various descents made by Dr. Beebe and Mr. Barton in the steel ball known as the Bathysphere, to an extreme depth in the ocean of over half a mile.
