Regarding waterproof paper for underwater data collection:

We use Xerox Never-Tear Paper (Reorder # 3R3118). It is very tough and never
gets soggy. You can photocopy directly on it or use a laser printer. Two
drawbacks are that the ink comes off if repeatedly rubbed by hands or gloves
or if the paper is not held down firmly. It is also quite expensive ($0.50 a
sheet, less when ordered in larger quantities). However, it works well in
Hawai'i under a wide variety of conditions.
