Attendees to date: Raimund, Lauren, Jack, Ron, Dieter, Jordan, Nancy, Owen, Alyssa, Michael, Karen and Rick
Desription:
A unique dry dive to approximately 180 feet. Our planned bottom time will be approximately 20-25 minutes, followed by a 160 minute decompression ascent to the “surface”.
 
Things to remember and bring: During the descent, temperature will rise quickly. Light clothing like a bathing suit, Tshirt and shorts is recommended. However on the ascent, temperature will drop over a 1 1/2 hour period. We recommend you bring a sweater or light jacket to change into. Use a bag NOT A AIR TIGHT SEALED CONTAINER to carry these items. If you wish to bring your computer and/or gauges to test there accuracy make sure they are submersed in water during the whole trip. DO  NOT BRING ANY SEALED CONTAINERS LIKE A WATER BOTTLE, CANTEEN OR THERMOS. Boyles law will be in full effect. There will be buckets of water that can be used to keep your cool.
We will be playing cards and attempting some writing skills to demonstrate the effects of nitrogen narcosis.
 
This will be an unparalleled opportunity to experience many things first hand, including but not limited to:
 
-          what it’s like to be in a Hyperbaric Chamber in a non-emergency situation (hopefully the only time you’ll be in one)
 
-          what it’s like to breathe air six times “thicker” than normal
 
-          the effects of nitrogen narcosis, which if the old “Martini’s Law” is correct, would be like having more than 5 Martinis on an empty stomach.
 
-          what decompression diving is like
 
-          how sound generation and transmission changes as air density changes
 
-          how accurate your dive computer is (you’ll need to immerse your dive computer in the water-filled-tray provided)
 
-          Gas Laws (when they pressurize the chamber (we “descend”) it will get quite warm, and when they de-pressurize the chamber (we “ascend”) it will get quite cool)

If the April 2nd session sells out, we will arrange another session if we have the minimum 10 required divers.
