    Finding a solution of filming the depth of seas

    Good morning!
    Which one of the following sentences seems more academic?
    Finding a solution of filming the depth of seas by a team of researchers which represents the escape and disappearance of fish when seeing divers and photo equipement.
    Or
    A team of researchers has found a solution for the problem faced by scientists when they took pictures of sea depth which lies in the escape and disappearance of fish when seeing divers and photo equipment.
    Thanks.

    Only one of the two is, in fact, a sentence. So there is only one possibility. But it needs work.

    Neither is correct. The first is not a sentence. The second doesn't make sense. Can you express the ideas in different words, perhaps in several sentences?

    Re: Finding a solution of filming the depth of seas

    Actually, I don't have better paraphrasing more than the previous sentences to convy the meaning. But I stick to rules and grammar,so why it has no sence?!

    Re: Finding a solution of filming the depth of seas

    Yes, you should probably have at least two sentences there. (What was the problem? What's the solution?)

    Remember that every sentence needs a verb.

    Say:

    Why doesn't it make sense?

    Re: Finding a solution of filming the depth of seas

    The problem,concerning the text,is the escape and disappearance of fish when divers trying to take photos

    The soution is sth that's not mention which is a robotic fish.

    Re: Finding a solution of filming the depth of seas

    Perhaps:

    There was a problem with filming deep below the surface of the ocean.

    And:

    Fish would seem to appear and disappear.

    And:

    Now some scientists have devised a solution to that problem.

    I don't know if that's what you're looking for.
