Pelagian approach to Instant Cell Validation

Pelagian approach to Instant Cell Validation- A pro active way to really find out if the sensors make sense is to have the diluent FgO2 x ambient pressure pre calculated in 5 m increments on your wrist slate or wet notes. Then go to the nearest depth and exhale half a breath from your nose and inhale slowly. If you inhale very slow for 10 seconds you will get a very accurate reading.

Active Sensor Validation (ASV)

Active Sensor Validation-allow the manual  injection of diluent gas directly on the oxygen sensors at any point during a dive. This  feature served two functions: it purged any condensation that might have accumulated  on the sensors (thereby restoring function to sensors blocked by a film of water on the  sensing membrane) and, more importantly, it exposed the oxygen sensors to a known  fraction of oxygen.

Life as a professional poo diver

Next time you’re having a shit day at work, spare a thought for Australia’s professional poo divers. They suit up and dive down into toxic ponds of excrement to make sure the country’s sewerage processing plants are running well.

Learning throughout experiences

My kid and I went fishing and snorkeling the past weekend. We did what in modern parental psychology is called: “quality time“. But what is important with these kind of activities is what both may learn from each other and the opportunity to answer all kind of weird questions that my kid may had to… […]
