    Other vehicle-related equipment (list):
    Science equipment to be installed on vehicle:
    Electronic equipment used in the ALVIN personnel sphere:
    Other comments and information:
1) we will be bringing a MST logger system (maybe 2) that has a Cs-137 gamma density source
2) we need accurate positioning (within a feet if possible)
3) we need a better source of water than the fire hose, which did not work very effectively (low flow rate) on the November test.
4) we need a diesel fuel line from your fuel tank for our hydraulics generator.
5) we will need good, up-to-date weather forecasting information.
6) we need a grab sampler (shipek, van veen, etc.)
7) we would like to use the WHOI core splitter if possible.
