Technical Diver's Handbook
Technical diving has come of age. Underwater explorers can now share the benefits of space-age spin-off hardware and developing decompression methodologies. The present volume incorporates recent innovations that were unavailable until only a few years ago. Acquaint yourself now with such new and exciting devices as the programmable nitrox wrist decompression computer, the personal computer interface, the hoseless pressure gauge, a heads-up mask display, decompression software for laptops, a submersible electric heating pad, and more. Also included in this handbook are equations and tips for blending nitrox, trimix, heliox, and heliair; instructions on how to build an in-water oxygen decompression station; the procedures and the chemicals needed to clean tanks, valves, and regulators for oxygen service; and a complete chapter on how to plan and conduct expedition style mix-gas diving operations. Large Format, 192 pages, 125 color photos, 12 tables, 12 equations, fully indexed.
