Media reviews

"At FKCC, all students in our A.S. degree program in Marine Environmental Technology are required to take a four credit-hour course, Basic Research Diving (ISC 2132); and John Heine's excellent book, Scientific Diving Techniques, is a required textbook for that class. It is difficult to find resources that are suited to the unique technical aspects of scientific research diving, so Heine's book has become a fundamental component of our program. Written by someone who has truly walked the walk, it is a comprehensive and practical guide that no diver who enters the water with a scientific objective should be without."
– Alex. F. Brylske, Ph.D., Professor, Marine Science & Technology, Florida Keys Community College
