Deep ocean also called deep-sea, refers to the nearly unreachable depths of the worlds oceans that exceed 1000 fathoms (1828 meters). Due to advances in technology, mankind is finally able to explore uncharted areas of the sea. Previous attempts at surpassing this depth were foiled due to the complete absence of light and the high water pressure achieved at this depth. Furthermore, below the thermocline layer could damage equipment in the vehicle.

The deeper parts of the ocean are explored through the usage of submersibles, a notable example of which is the voyage to find the sunken Titanic, and the usage of Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs)
