    Super cool, very interesting. Funny that in the middle of summer we find an article about the cold water dives in an Indian magazine :)

    This probably has minimal application for PSDs because they often need protection form chemical and biological hazards afforded by dry suits. Using low thermal-conductivity gasses in drysuits is marginally effective because humidity in the suit increases thermal conductivity far more than the gas can compensate for.
