Diving Safety Program


The Diving Safety Program provides training and oversight to faculty, staff and students who use self-contained underwater breathing apparatus (scuba) as a tool to conduct underwater research.

Scientific diving is regulated at both the state and federal levels. The Diving Safety Program uses training, operational support and oversight to ensure compliance with these regulations. The program also meets the American Academy of Underwater Sciences (AAUS) Standards for Scientific Diving; it is a current AAUS organizational member.
