Title: Training, equipment, and operational procedures for conducting scientific saturation diving activities
Author: Kesling, D; Berey, R
Abstract: Shallow water air saturation diving techniques have been used for many years to help increase underwater bottom times and maximize scientific productivity. The National Undersea Research Center of Fairleigh Dickinson University currently operates the world's only undersea habitat specifically designed and dedicated to scientific research in the sea. It is called Aquarius and is located in Salt River Submarine Canyon in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. Safe and effective use of this facility requires special pre-dive training, equipment modifications and specific operational procedures for the staff and saturating aquanauts. This paper will address the training, equipment, and safety aspects for scientific saturation diving activities.
