Abstract:

Twelve Navy divers were tested in the Farnsworth-Munsell 100-Hut Test during a series of experimental saturation dives to investigate the effect of oxygen partial pressure on color vision. Although no statistically significant results were found, the procedure and technique were established. Effect of illumination and analyses of error scores in the tritan areas of color confusion are discussed as well as the poorer performance of the diver population compared to the non-diver population.
