Abstract

Documents collected by Dr. John C. Ogden related to his (and his colleague)'s November 1981 scientific research project at Hydrolab, an underwater laboratory located on the seafloor which allowed scientists to live and work underwater for extended periods of time. At the time of the research project, Hydrolab was located at a depth of approximately 50 feet in Salt River submarine canyon, St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. Materials included in this section of the binder include project planning documents, personnel lists, aquanaut excursion logs, an abstract for a scientific paper titled "Foraging Behavior of the Rainbow Parrotfish (Scarus guacamia)" by John C. Ogden, daily narrative logs, sketches of fish, a table of sunrise and sunset times at San Juan, Puerto Rico, instructions for the use of a USR-5 digital receiver, a marine flora survey report by Nancy Ogden, and fish ultrasonic tracking data sheets.
