How was this table created ? I am interested in generating some of the buhlman NDLs for the GF factors in between.
Use MultiDeco and play with the settings

I used the NDL planner on my Teric and on an Oceanic Geo 2.

I also use MultiDeco but it does not give you NDLs

A note for others doing this who may not live at sea level, this will skew the times since the "current" atmospheric pressure is used.

Subsurface is another tool that will give NDL times directly (arguably easier than MultiDeco).

@inquisit makes a good point. That is the reason I included the atmospheric pressure for the table I posted earlier, 1013 millibar Diving with gradient factors for a new recreational diver

This table shows the range of NDLs with an atmospheric pressure of between 985-1028 millibar. Normal pressure at sea level is 1013.25 millibar. You can compare the sea level NDLs for air at a GF high of 95 from the other table to these ranges.

Thanks, I tried MulticDeco but it didn 't show NDLs indeed. Subsurface does but it is a bit cumbersome, as is only shows when hoovering over the graph.

Look at the table on the right. NDL is shown on the line listing the dive depth. (That's when the plan has you starting your ascent.)
