A diving bell is a chamber suspended by a cable that allows divers to stay underwater for long periods of time, thus avoiding the need to return to the surface repeatedly and risking decompression sickness. With increasing depth , the height of the level of water in the tank increases, compressing the air inside the chamber. Such a device was described by Aristotle.
