Icelandic Piston Corer

Showing the single result

  • Paleoecological analysis
  • Lightweight piston sampler for soft lake deposits
  • Long (2.0m long/drive), undisturbed cores of sediment-water interface from shallow lakes
  • Ideal sampler for gyttja, clay, and fine sand sediments
  • Piston Sampling is a proven method to minimize core shortening and/or compression
