Objective Check the visibilty and flow in the system. Get familiar with this system. Practice team procedures and tune skills.
Logistics Single stage and scooter with backup scooter.
Bottom Time 85
Maximum Depth 138
Results The team scootered for 30 minutes up to the maxiflow. The visibility up to that point was in the order of 50 feet. After that point they found blue water with perfect visibility. They reached the big room and took a sharp right turn to find more cave. They continued on in crystal clear water and turned 50 minutes into the dive after checking a few Ts and coming back on the main line. They came out 35 minutes later.

Objective Basin testing of High Definition Television Camera Evaluate flow and visibility Video B and C tunnels
Logistics Scooters, open circuit, EE HID Video Lighting, Sony VX 1000 video housing
Bottom Time 20
Maximum Depth 297
Results Basin conditions are dark with significant outflow from A tunnel. B and C tunnels have moderate flow with the increased discharge almost exclusive to A. Conditions in A are very dark with poor visibility. High Definition Television provides remarkable clarity and creates a nearly 3d perspective. Future efforts will involve the first ever HDTV cave footage.
