I am tasked to gather some data for a paper I am going to present
to one fairly new and two major training agencies.
Those of you who feel that deep diving on air is safe, please e-mail
me directly. Deep diving is defined for this discussion as depths between 100 and 180'. This data collection is targeted at both
recreational and technical divers (however you see yourself).
I will supply you the questionaire. You must provide a verifiable
direct ISP e-mail address for me to maintain the validity
of your response. No Hotmail or Deja type blind e-mail or re-mailer accounts will be answered, much less taken remotely serious. The scope
of this data collection and subsequent paper is targeted for the
The e-mail (or FAXED of you wish) generated questionaire will include
some basic questions about your training to date, personal information including, but not limited to; date originally certified, current age,
certification level to date, etc., along with a brief description of
your deep air habits and physical expectations. I will ask for your
name and phone number in case I require clarification of your
submissions. All data collected will be kept confidential. However, all information must be supplied to be referenced in the report.
Participants who provide complete information may be invited to take
part in a chamber controlled experiemnt with a dive down to as deep as
160 feet at a later date.
Now is the chance for those of you out there who think they are "good on air" to offer up the data to perhaps prove it.
