The divers work thousands of hours to recover ancient relics of the ancient cities of Alexandria, Heraklion and Kanubis inundated by waters of the Mediterranean because of frequent earthquakes and floods, the Nile or the tsunami.

Frank Gaudio said the founding President of the European Institute for the effects of sinking was an electronic survey at the site of the ancient port of Alexandria and Abu Qir Bay, using sophisticated techniques, including magnetic resonance scale developed by the French Atomic Energy Agency.

And is now known that the ancient port of Alexandria was extended to 600 hectares and the city of Heraklion discovered at a distance of 7 km inside the sea stretching over more than a kilometer square, and the eastern section of the sunken Kanubis extends over 500 square meters.
