Abstract
The journey to the sea-bottom of sensors and recorders and the return of recorded information are two essential stages in a successful visit by a self-contained instrument package. Launching procedures, whether free-fall or controlled, will depend on the relationship of sensors to bathymetry. Recovery techniques are basically those of acquiring stored information and range from the use of underwater telemetry to a return of all the hardware. Techniques are described for launching and recovering instrument packages which are applicable to shallow and deep water as well as temperate and frozen seas.
