     We also use a water proof copier sheet.  THIS STUFF IS GREAT!!!  We 
     xerox our data form or transect maps onto the paper, take it down, and 
     write away.  It doesn't tear, smear, the ink is permanent and it's 
     easy to write on with pencil.  Order information:

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.
