Although this article was published in the GUE Blog, it is a little confusing to use the phrase "from GUE," because it implies an endorsement. Not long after publishing that, they published this: Digging Deeper: A Fresh Case for Deep StopsGradient Factors in a Post-Deep Stops World
Interesting article from GUE
In big bold letters in the middle of the GUE article it says:
"The emerging body of evidence against deep stops suggest common gradient factor setting should be modified to de-emphasize deep stops."
"However, since about 2005, evidence has been accumulating from comparative decompression trials that shows deep stops are not more efficient, and possibly less efficient, than shallow stops."
The title promises a "fresh case for deep stops" in decompression diving, the precise opposite of the Doolette position. The article then describes the untested and unpublished opinions of some researchers and references old studies on no-stop diving.
