Bio collection boxes
Push corers
Scoop nets
High temperature probe
Low temperature probe
Heat flow probe
Magnetometer
Portable CTD
Digital Still Camera
Search Sonar

    Other comments and information:
This will be a REVEL cruise with significant e-mail/web demands
We would like to talk to the Alvin group, perhaps Blee, about best method for down looking imaging
The slurp sampler, a hydraulic net, and the pelagic pump will be on for most dives (all hydraulic)
