Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

Claims:

1. A marine habitation system comprising:

a habitable chamber; and,

a column in communication with the habitable chamber at a first end and including a second end, opposite the first end, for mounting in the sea bed, wherein the chamber is moveable with respect to the column to adjust for variable sea water levels.

2. The marine habitation system of claim 1, wherein the column includes a portion in communication with a platform of the habitable chamber, the portion configured for moving vertically to adjust the height of the habitable chamber.

3. The marine habitation system of claim 1 , wherein the habitable chamber includes a moveable portion in communication with the column for moving the habitable chamber with respect to the column.

4. The marine habitation system of claim 2, wherein the column portion is additionally configured to be rotatable for rotating the habitable chamber.

5. The marine habitation system of claim 3, wherein the moveable portion of the habitable chamber is additionally configured to be rotatable for rotating the habitable chamber.

6. The marine habitation system of claims 3 or 4, wherein the first end of the column for mounting in the sea bed is such that the column is configured for anchoring in the sea bed.

7. The marine habitation system of claim 2, wherein, the habitable chamber additionally comprises a cover over at least a portion of the platform.

8. The marine habitation system of claim 1, additionally comprising a sink resistant base for supporting the column.

9. The marine habitation system of claim 8, wherein the sink resistant base includes an opening, and, the supporting the column includes receiving the column in the opening, such that the column extends through the opening.

10. The marine habitation system of claim 9, wherein the column extends through the opening and into the sea bed.

11. The marine habitation system of claim 8, wherein the sink resistant base includes oppositely disposed first and second sides, the first side for supporting the column, and the second side including an additional column extending from the second side.

12. The marine habitation system of claim 1, additionally comprising at least one first anchor tethered to at least one of the columns or the habitable chamber.

13. The marine habitation system of claim 12, additionally comprising at least one second anchor in communication with the at least one first anchor.

14. The marine habitation system of claim 12, wherein the tethering includes at least one shock absorber

15. The marine habitation system of claim 12, wherein the tethering is adjustable in its length to maintain the column in a vertical orientation.

16. A method for constructing a marine habitation system comprising:

obtaining a habitable chamber and a column, the column including oppositely disposed first and second ends;

mounting the first end of the column in the sea bed; and,

placing the habitable chamber into communication with the second end of the column, for moving the habitable chamber with respect to the column.

17. The method of claim 16, wherein the column is configured for at least one of: moving the chamber substantially vertically, and rotating the chamber.

18. The method of claim 16, wherein the habitable chamber is configured for at least one of: moving substantially vertically with respect to the column, and rotating about the column.
