That sounds interesting.
Still, I'm not sure impairment is all you have to consider.
My limited experience showed that the problem at the depths I was at
was distraction due to paranoia. I didn't feel intoxicated and the
tunnel vision was not a problem, but the paranoia could have effected
judgement and even potentially led to panic and we know the result of
that. So really, I'm not sure what a chamber dive would say about the
real world. The dangerous paranoia effect might be far reduced in a
nice cozy warm chamber, though as a test of just the intoxication issue,
it would still be quite interesting.
Enjoy the diving, wet or dry, seahunt
