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

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?


Vehicle equipment required:Check one or both:
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:
Butterfly (bag) samplers in milk crates(no power/logging)
    Electronic equipment used in the ALVIN personnel sphere:
    Other comments and information:
Cruise requirements are essentially the same as Cowen's May cruise to Gauymas.
As with that cruise, the UH LISST will be attached to the CTD-rosette frame,
electrical power, data feed into CTD.
