Section Three: Looking Ahead
New Technologies
Prepared by Lynne Carter Hanson Background/Summary There are many technologies coming into use by the scientific diving community that are beyond those traditionally used by scientific divers. Many of these new technologies are not new at all, but have a long history of industrial and other diver group usage (e.g., NOAA use of NITROX). When adopting additional technologies into the repertoire of scientific diving, a variety of mechanisms have been used which range from personal discussions to the convening of a workshop (e.g., American Academy of Underwater Sciences' Workshop on Diving Computers) and development of standards for and by the community. The four perspectives concerned with additional technologies and mechanisms to deal with them are:
  • The ship operator with overall responsibility for over-the-side operations;
  • The scientist with his or her need and desire to accomplish good science;
  • The scientist's home institution with its concerns for safety, liability, and reputation; and
  • The funding agency which is responsive to community demands and at the same time responsible for (among others): safety, finances, and precedent setting issues.

A small group of rag tag divers and revellers met at the Shores for the club picnic. Weather was nice, conditions were poor, food was plentiful, everything was in place for a great barbeque. We were just shy about 15 people or so. Nevertheless those of us who were there had a good time, and the odds were great for the raffle. Shore Diving

Curricular Requirements
Moss Landing Marine Laboratories (MLML) is located on Monterey Bay in the fishing port of Moss Landing, which lies in the fishing port of Moss Landing, halfway between Santa Cruz and the Monterey Pennisula. As a site for a marine laboratory, Moss Landing has a number of assets. The head of the Monterey Submarine Canyon, the largest such feature on the west coast of the Americas, is situated a few hundred meters west of the Laboratories. Scientists can work conveniently on a diversity of deep-water habitats in the canyon because 1000-meter depths occur within one hour's ship steaming time of the harbor. To the east of the Laboratories is Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve, one of the largest, relatively unspoiled salt marshes remaining on the Pacific coast. To the north and south, sand dunes, rocky intertidal environments, and subtidal kelp forests provide further valuable areas for scientific study. These features facilitate study and research in all disciplines of marine science. MLML is operated by a consortium of seven campuses of the California State University: Fresno Hayward Monterey Bay Sacramento ... San Jose State , and Stanislaus . San Jose State University serves as the administering institution. Classes at MLML are open to properly qualified upper-division undergraduate and graduate students enrolled through one of

Marine Science and Innovation – A Pembrokeshire Vision
Top international scientists and local experts will be joining forces in Pembrokeshire in September to take part in the Darwin Centre for Biology and Medicine’s two-day marine conference, Marine Science and Innovation – A Pembrokeshire Vision The conference, a watershed event for the county is being held at Pembrokeshire College, Haverfordwest on Thursday 26 th September and Friday 27 th September.
The Darwin Centre for Biology and Medicine is an initiative which aims to bring cutting edge science and entrepreneurship into education and everyday life through schools, festivals, and public understanding of science and health. Pembrokeshire is now its principal base and area of activity. The Pembrokeshire Darwin Science Festival , launched in 2000 to celebrate the achievements of science, promotes the Darwin Centre and is the conference organising body.
The conference comprises of four sessions:
What is special about the marine environment of Pembrokeshire?
The molecular and cellular biology of marine model systems
Education and the public understanding of science
The commercialisation of marine systems
Key speakers include
Professor Anthony Campbell , Director of the Darwin Centre and Professor in Medical Biochemistry at the University of Wales College of Medicine.

    SECTION TWO: Safety Issues
    Authority and Responsibility
    Prepared by Phil Sharkey and Jack Bash The session on Authority and Responsibility issues was wide ranging and included many examples of problems drawn from past experience. The workshop participants read over the current Section 15 of the UNOLS Shipboard Safety Standards and discussed its advantages and disadvantages. There was agreement that the Section 15 needs revision and that it could be a primary vehicle for creating a clearer definition of shipboard diving authority and responsibility. There was little controversy over the exact direction that a revision should take. It was felt that the current Section 15 of the UNOLS Shipboard Safety Standards should be revised to-
    • Clarify the definitions of authority and responsibility.
    • Assist the Master's understanding by defining cruise participants' jobs. In this way the Master's task changes from having to get these things done personally to assuring himself that others have gotten them done.
    • Include a requirement for appropriate personnel to provide the Master with a detailed precruise briefing.

    The research diving program of Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego (SIO, UCSD) is the oldest of its type in the country. The first non-military class in the U.S. which taught the use of self-contained underwater breathing apparatus (scuba) was held by scientists for scientists on the Scripps campus during the summer of 1951. In 1952 two individuals died using university-owned scuba equipment. This led to the President's Office restricting diving to those who had been trained through the program at Scripps. A statewide committee was formed to address the problems of training, equipment standards, air purity, physical examinations, recordkeeping, and diver certification. The university decentralization of the early 1960's led to development, by the Scripps Diving Officer of programs on each of the other campuses. At the request of the President's Office, the Diving Officer also developed the first "University Guide for Diving Safety." This document, first published in March 1967, allows reciprocity between the various campuses, and is reviewed yearly by the campus Diving Safety Officers.
