||Hearing conservation for divers and swimmers has been overlooked nearly everywhere in the world. Because submerging a listener changes his or her auditory physiology dramatically the research on which are based exposure limits for airborne noise are not relevant under water. So far, little research has been done for the development of a damage-risk standard for underwater noise exposure. The value of Poland's marine industries and the motivation of its audiologists make Poland and ideal country in which to accomplish this research and to lay the foundation for national and international standards.
