Cambrian Foundation North Florida Spring Project

Noted cave diver Terrence Tysall and PADI Worldwide’s Karl Shreeves participated in the February 2010 Cambrian Foundation North Florida Spring Project. The project, which is currently partially funded by a grant from the US National Science Foundation, is studying the presence and growth of chemosnythetic bacteria in several caves in the Florida aquifer. Most of the research sites are closed to general diving, but the Cambrian Foundation has been graciously granted a research permit for these sites by the state of Florida.
