Major water samplers
Large capacity slurp samplers
Small capacity slurp samplers
Bio collection boxes
Push corers
Scoop nets
High temperature probe
Low temperature probe
Heat flow probe
Magnetometer
Portable CTD
Digital Still Camera
Search Sonar
Profiling Sonar
Rock Drill (Jason only)
Video Duplication (Jason)
Elevators
    Other vehicle-related equipment (list):
    Science equipment to be installed on vehicle:
sample boxes
Craig Taylor's pkg (?) (=wiring demands)
+ NASA eqpt TBD (= wiring demands)
possibly Rutgers eqpt (Falkowski/Kolber) (= wiring demands)
    Electronic equipment used in the ALVIN personnel sphere:
    Other comments and information:
I definitely need a tutorial on what it takes to
use the CTD/rosette system. What do I need to bring
with me to ensure that it works? We have personnel to man the ops at night, but we will
need tech assistance to figure out how
to work it all, plus deck hands for launch/recovery
