At Northeastern University, a course was developed to train scientific divers, which fulfills the American Academy of Underwater Sciences (AAUS) requirement of 100 hours training with 12 dives. This course is designed to introduce students to techniques used in the study of biology, ecology and physiology of subtidal marine organisms. Current underwater research methods are learned and implemented in underwater exercises. Topics include: diving physiology, diving accident management, sampling design, underwater video and photography, population censusing methods, shipboard diving operations, and the use of submersibles in research. The laboratory component demonstrates quantitative analysis of field data including statistical analysis using microcomputers. Students enter the course as Divers-in-Training and upon completion are certified as Scientific Divers.
