Abstract : In the Summer of 1969 the P.P. Shirshov Institute of Oceanology of the USSR Academy of Sciences carried out a series of oceanographic investigations using the underwater laboratory of the Institute, CHERNOMOR-2. In the course of the investigations, a crew of four aquanauts stayed underwater at a depth of 25 meters for 14 days. Decompression which was conducted directly in the underwater laboratory upon completion of the crew's activity lasted for 39 hours. In the process of conducting underwater investigations, divers from the crew spent 2.5 to 3.5 hours each in the water. The successful completion of the 1969 scientific program with the use of the CHERNOMOR-2 underwater laboratory confirms the correctness of the chosen design of the underwater laboratory systems.
