Radio dose not work well underwater, but sound dose.

I think space a underwater exploration are very different things. (
unless you are mapping the sea from space. )

The way that you get maps of the sea floor is with combination of
boats, GPS, and sonar. For large scale you can also by sattelite map
the big features by looking at how then effect the sufarace of the
sea.

I am not a expert at this stuff and I am sure there are things I am
missing but in general this is how it works.
