  • 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
