He swam to a neighboring island, against the upper end of which the driftwood had lodged in such quantities as to form a natural raft; under this he dived, and swam below water
until he succeeded in getting a breathing place between the floating trunks of trees, whose branches and bushes formed a covert several feet above the level of the water.
Matkah taught him to follow the cod and the halibut along the under-sea banks and wrench the rockling out of his hole among the weeds; how to skirt the wrecks lying a hundred fathoms below water
and dart like a rifle bullet in at one porthole and out at another as the fishes ran; how to dance on the top of the waves when the lightning was racing all over the sky, and wave his flipper politely to the stumpy-tailed Albatross and the Man-of-war Hawk as they went down the wind; how to jump three or four feet clear of the water like a dolphin, flippers close to the side and tail curved; to leave the flying fish alone because they are all bony; to take the shoulder-piece out of a cod at full speed ten fathoms deep, and never to stop and look at a boat or a ship, but particularly a row-boat.
Worse than any tangle of fishing-lines was the confusion of the dory-rodings below water
Greg Poling of the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative at the Center for Strategic and International Studies said he expected they would be conducted "only around those features that were indisputably below water

It is believed the holes were 50mm below water
level and were letting up to three litres of water into the vessel every minute.
A low-tide elevation is below water
during high tide and therefore in legal sense a low-tide elevation does not generate any maritime entitlement whether in the context of 12 nm territorial sea or 200 nm exclusive economic zone.
1 problem with ice is that classic picture, where 25 percent is above water and three-quarters are below water
Two tenders for the conducting the required (a) excavation, earthmoving, backfill and supply of clean sand below water

, who routinely lose unprovoked battles with stray plastic debris.
With live underwater cameras and three levels of outside viewing, you'll see all the action above and below water
The system uses under hull sonar technology to provide a 360[degrees], below water
protection zone that can discriminate between genuine threats such as divers and swimmers, and non-threats such as large fish or pleasure craft.
Groundwater contamination doesn't necessarily come directly from injecting fracking chemicals deep into shale rock formations well below water
aquifers but from waste water evaporation ponds and poorly constructed pipelines taking the waste water and chemicals to processing facilities.
