  • Description:
    This report summarizes The University of Michigan's program in underwater technology and research. Nearly all such activities are directly or indirectly related to the Michigan Sea Grant Program's. Underwater Technology Project. Since 1970, more than 6,000 person-dives (5,000 person-hours underwater) have been made in the underwater program. The University has an Underwater Technology Laboratory which houses a hyperbaric chamber, a research laboratory, and a complete diving locker. Since 1972, there have been more than 919 man-​pressurizations in the chamber, including 106 oxygen medical treatments. The program has extended scientific diving capabilities through the application of surface-​supplied diving, research in cold weather diving, development of underwater research techniques, specialized training cruises and the publication of diving manuals. The program's underwater habitat served Great Lakes area researchers and students for three years in Grand Traverse Bay. In addition, the University's saturation diving team has completed two missions in the Hydrolab Underwater Habitat. Diving safety has been emphasized throughout the program's development. More than 1,000 students have received basic and specialized diver training. Occupational safety and health standards have been developed for scientific divers. The program has integrated the efforts of several University units into a functional underwater research and education program.
