Abstract : The report was written to promulgate a revised set of tables to allow rapid and easy conversion of water depth and partial pressure combinations into appropriate oxygen per cent to be used by divers and diving supervisors. The tables were devised for use when making necessary conversions between depth in feet of sea water and pressure in terms of atmospheres absolute. (Author)
