Written with a minimum of technical jargon, this book is a significant addition to the literature on diving in an overhead environment, with extensive coverage of those areas which are all too often passed over in more general works. It will dispel misconceptions and myths by providing a clear, concise and modern overview of the essential equipment, skills and techniques required to dive in caves, mines, wrecks and beneath ice.
With a foreword by cave diver Jill Heinerth, Diving in Darkness covers equipment, line-laying techniques, dealing with stress, dive planning, communications and air management; indeed, every aspect of the sport, with appendices on special situations in wrecks and beneath ice. Martyn Farr is the award-winning author of the acclaimed book The Darkness Beckons and has distilled more than thirty years of experience into his latest work. A cave diver of international renown with a string of discoveries to his name, Martyn now trains divers in the overhead environment from his base in South Wales, UK.
Illustrated in colour throughout, this is a readable book that will appeal to divers and cavers alike. Published in softback with a laminated cover, Diving in Darkness is packed with 170 photographs and diagrams throughout its 128pp. It is available from all good caving and diving outlets, or direct from Martyn Farr.
