There are tons, but you probably don't have time enough to get them before school starts, Hammerhead Press, Best Bookbinders, Cornell Maritime Press. Try internet mags like Offshore, Maritime Reporter, Rigzone etc. and read the ads too. Internet-Look up Divex, Amron, Divers Supply, Wachs, Stanley Underwater Tools, Drager Diving Equipment. Maritime Salvage, Marine construction, piledriving, caisson-sheet pile, marine pipeline construction, Diving Support Vessels, Dynamic positioning. Offshore demolition, Ships husbandry, underwater burning & welding, rigging, seamanship & small boat handling.......more on request. b
Look for "Life Support Systems Design" by Nuckols/Tucker/Sarich. put out by Pearson Custom Publishing. I bought mine from Best Books. It's all about Diving and Hyperbaric applications, gives you examples of formulas in common sense format.

Check ebay and amazon for used books.
"Diver" by Tony Groom. Not nessesarly educational but a very good read. I got mine from Tony himself but I think it can be purchased from www.seafarerbooks.com
At least two years when he told me about the book. I know hes still kickin every once and a while he is on longstreath
North Sea Divers a requiem... good book.
