dc.description.abstract Many scientific diving entities face logistical challenges in their data collection including high currents, low visibility, and high entanglement areas. We will discuss standard practices for use of tethered scuba for scientific applications to enhance both efficiency and safety of the scientific diver. We will examine relevant regulatory requirements and applicable standards of the federal dive community (e.g., NOAA, EPA) relative to the application to scientific diving. Finally, we will make recommendations to advance this diving mode within the scientific diving community. en_US
