Being, acting, or growing, under water in the sea; as, submarine navigators; submarine plants.
A submarine boat; a ship that can travel under the surface of the water. Most such ships are ships of war, as part of a navy, but submarines are also used for oceanic research. Also called sub and (from the German U-Boot) U-boat.
a submarine torpedo boat; -- called specif. submergible submarine when capable of operating at various depths and of traveling considerable distances under water, and submersible submarine when capable of being only partly submerged, i.e., so that the conning tower, etc., is still above water. The latter type and most of the former type are submerged as desired by regulating the amount of water admitted to the ballast tanks and sink on an even keel; some of the former type effect submersion while under way by means of horizontal rudders, in some cases also with admission of water to the ballast tanks.

heavy walled vessel that can withstand pressures under water and allow occupants to breathe air at sea level pressure and travels under its own power.
Pertaining to regions below sea level.
A submarine is a specialized watercraft that can operate underwater at very high pressures beyond the range of unaided human survivability. Submarines, first widely used in World War I, are used by all major navies today, especially the American, Russian and British navies. Civilian submarines and submersibles are used for marine and freshwater science and for work at depths too great for human divers.
