    Other vehicle-related equipment (list):
    Science equipment to be installed on vehicle:
We have been in contact with the Alvin group about a basket design for our newly developed in situ electrochemical analyzer that can be deployed with unattended data collection and later retrieved.

We will also use our survey electrochemical analyzer that was successfully deployed in 1999 and 2000.
    Electronic equipment used in the ALVIN personnel sphere:
labtop computers are to be sent up for sniffing.
