Abstract : Humidity charts suitable for use with gas mixtures of various compositins and for various pressures are rare in the literature. Present charts specifically for use with gas mixtures used in saturation diving require the use of separate charts and interpolation for pressures which are intermediate to those specifically presented. The Universal Humidity Chart in the report is a single chart allowing humidity and energy calculations for any mixture of monatomic and diatomic gases at pressures from 1 atmosphere to any pressure that might conceivable be encountered in saturation diving. The simplification is made possible by a judicious choice of units for humidity. (Author)
