The answer, TDI-Diver, to your query is this:


That stands for Defense & Civil Institute Environmental Medicine -- CANADA.

OUR good friend, Brett Gilliam, has printed a copy of the DCIEM tables in each of his TDI manuals.

I am SURE you know about this, TDI-DIVER. Brett puts a copy of them into EVERY TDI manual.

I WONDER if you have "had an opportunity" to look at them. They are fantastic and MUCH BETTER than ANYTHING that I have ever seen regarding dive tables SOUTH OF THE BORDER -- the Canadian border !!!

I have no objections to tables. Its just that every table I have ever seen in These United States is not worth a turd.

DCIEM on the other hand are GREAT dive tables. I have a laminated set that I keep in my gear bag at all times. I use them for backup. And for verifying technical dive plans. Their format is tricky, at first, but not bad once you get used to them. And the Canadien is not that hard to read, if youre good at American English. :)
