Cooperation with Scientific Organizations

ArmDiving realizes multiple projects by collaborating with Scientific Research Companies to provide needed data. We cooperate with the Sevan National Park, Ichthyology Institute, Geology Institute.

In the summer of 2017 the first collaboration started between ArmDiving and the “Georisk” Scientific Research Company. The first step was taking sludge sample from a depth of 30 meters of Big Sevan by French and Armenian geologists, afterwards taking the profile near Artsvanist village with the help of “Sonar” device which was provided by the Geology Institute. ArmDiving started the process of scanning the bottom of the Lake Sevan.

During the months of July – September of 2017 we managed to fix 9 long profiles of the Sevan bottom near the Arevik, Zhayr, Artanish and other shores. The received results were provided to the Institute of Geological Sciences for geological researches.

The program of scanning intends to not only help Sevan’s geological researches and fix the bottom surface of the lake, as well as create the 3D image of Sevan, but also discover the possible anomalies of the bottom of the lake with the help of the device, which is performed by ArmDiving club members by diving into the lake and discovering sank ships and other objects.
