How does nitrogen behave in blood and tissues when a diver descends to a great depth (such as the depth of the USS Monitor) and then ascends to the surface?
What problems can this cause? And what other consequences to divers are caused by nitrogen gas in solution at depths?
***I don't know how to answer the first part of the question and I cannot find a source that can tell me information that correctly answers that... I think I could answer the 2nd and 3rd parts of the question if I knew the first part haha :) Any help is appreciated! Whether it's info or a source for me to use! Thanks

Nitrogen in our blood?
For some reason I'm thinking nitrogen fixation, but I don't think that's in our bodies. But you should google or BING search as @phi stated :)
when scuba diving you breathe compressed air (at a pressure to match the pressure the water is exerting)
nitrogen at high pressure enters the blood stream (think, "gets crammed in")
it stays there until you surface. at the lower pressure, the nitrogen leaks out of the blood. If done quickly (like popping the cork on champagne ) it can cause problems.
