Abstract:

The available information on the character of the ocean bottom Benthos has been correlated with that on dry land areas to assess potential trafficability on the ocean floor. Because, relatively speaking, very little is known about the ocean bottom, there is an urgent need for development of vehicles with which to continue the exploration and exploitation of this last frontier.
