The new 2nd Edition of Basic Decompression Theory And Application has been extended, updated, with new material added. It takes all rudiments of decompression theory and phase mechanics to considerable depth, while focusing on diving applications in an historical perspective. Topics span many disciplines, and the targeted audience is the commercial diver, hyperbaric scientist, doctor, physical scientist, technical diver, and instructor. Recent developments in diving tables, decompression meters, and decompression management software are presented, and broad model underpinnings are detailed and contrasted. Testing and validation of modern dual phase approaches to staging for decompression, extended range, altitude, and mixed gas diving are a focus of discussion. Deep stops, optimal gas switches, and helium mixes are underscored from diver experience, data, and coarse grain principles. References and numerical examples (with solutions) are included for more detail and extended diver analysis.
The monograph is a ten part series, touching upon diving aspects of thermodynamics, pressure and density, flow mechanics, gas kinetics, free and dissolved phase transfer, gas counter transport, nucleation and cavitation, bubbles and surfactants, statistics, DCS and oxygen toxicity risk. Computational schemes popularly employed in the technical diving sector are developed. New material and updated information are woven into the fabric of the earlier version. The 1st Edition of this publication was a sellout in the diving community, and the 2nd Edition is much more detailed, comprehensive, and modern in panorama.

This is an excellent book on the theory of technical diving, especially the latest decompression information. If you are into deep technical diving this book is a must-read. You may find it quite detailed and very technical, but it will be worth the extra time spent reading it over until you understand it.
