There were a number of lectures recorded at Rebreather Forum 3 (RF3) in May 2012. As they come on line, I’ll post them up here as a resource for all.
|The fourth Rebreather Forum 3 video lecture to be uploaded is given by USA based Christian M. McDonald.|
CCR COMMUNITIES - SCIENTIFIC
Chaired by Martin Robson
17:10, Friday 18 May 2012, Caribbean Ballroom III
"Rebreather use in the scientific community has been limited, especially if they detract from the purpose of the dive mission, particularly making scientific observations and data collections. The investment in rebreather training may not be realistic to incorporate into the scientific diving community but there is still much potential to extend bottom times and explore beyond 100 ft / 30 metres. In this talk, current mandates of the American Academy of Underwater Sciences (AAUS) and thoughts on incorporating rebreathers into the scientific diving community are discussed."
