There are many kinds of different dive tables.
The newest on the current scene (Spring 2004) are NAUI's new RGBM-based NDL tables and RGBM-based deco tables.
These new NDL tables plan for 3 dives, and are set for a max depth on the first dive of the recreational limit of 130 ft. You are then shown a minimum surface interval and a maximum depth for a 2nd and a 3rd (repetitive) dive.
The new deco tables work for max depths to 350 ft for about a dozen different bottom mixes, giving deco times on bottom mix back up to 20 ft, where you then switch to 100% O2. You can substitute your own EANx deco mixes for the bottom mix during deco, as long as you bear in mind the CNS exposure limitations of EANx deco in combination with pure O2. The minimum surface interval for a repetitive deco dive is 3 hours, with the max repetitive depth to be at least 1 ATA shallower than your first dive. Certain dives are designated to be exceptional exposure dives, and no repetitive deco diving is permitted.
The RGBM algorithm will soon be available in the Suunto dive computers and in Abyss deco software, if not already available.
With the software programs, you can print and laminate any specific customized tables that you desire, based on whatever algorithm they contain.
I would guess that you may have seen the new NAUI tables for NDL diving.
