Deep Submergence Research 1 January through 31 December 1964 During the above period the Deep Submergence Research Program at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution moved steadily forward with the inspection of the final assembly and test of the 6,000 foot Deep Submergence Research Vehicle (DSRV) ALVIN. The vehicle was received in Woods Hole in May and was commissioned on June 5, 1964. Subsequently, a series of some 70 dives in shallow water were conducted for operator training and scientist orientation. A discussion of operations, use of instruments, construction of a catamaran for a support vessel, support equipment and miscellaneous testing programs is included. the submarine is presently undergoing an extensive inspection and refit period, the results of which are reported. Technical reports that include the details of some of the activity are referenced.
