Scientific Diving at PNNL-Sequim
PNNL-Sequim has an experienced dive team that supports scientific and engineering research projects in waters ranging from the coastal ocean to large and small rivers across the U.S. These scientists perform a range of studies including substrate assessments and data collection, habitat restoration, underwater sampling, equipment deployment, and underwater videography and photography. Our divers have Basic, Advanced, and Rescue Diver certifications and are equipped with both standard SCUBA and rebreather equipment. They use full face masks that allow for underwater communication with each other and with people out of the water.
