Discrete Point Piston Corer

Showing the single result

  • Paleoecological analysis
  • Lightweight piston sampler for soft lake deposits
  • Long (1.2 m long/drive), undisturbed discrete cores from shallow lakes
  • Ideal for collecting beautiful samples of gyttja, clay, and fine sand deposits
  • The sampler employs a “close-open-close” design with retractable lead rod to enable collection of discrete 1.2 m long core samples
  • Piston Sampling is a proven method to minimize core shortening and/or core compression
  • Discrete Point Piston Corer can only be deployed in shallow lakes (max Z 25 m) with a string of Aluminum Holobar Extension Rods
