    Do you require slip rings?
YesNumber of conductors:CTD
    Do you need non-standard wire?
NoIf so, what type?
    Do you need a traction winch?
Yes
Will you be bringing any equipment (winches, blocks, etc.) that lowers equipment over the side?

If yes, please provide details:
Will there be special requirements for:

    Electrical power
No
    Equipment handling
No
    Inter/intraship communications
No
    Science stowage
No

If yes to any of the above, please identify: I am assuming the camera tow & any rock dredging are not special.

Will any of the following items be used on board?

    Explosive devices
No
    Portable air compressors
No
    Flammable gases
No
    Radioisotopes
No
    Isotope van
No

Will hazardous material be used aboard, or deployed by an ROV? Yes

What measures or plans have been made a) in the event of a spill, and b) for the removal and/or disposal of these materials at the completion of the cruise?
At this point, I do not know where the ship will dock in the US in 2004, so I have not been able to make plans for chemical disposal.
