  • What are Core Samplers?

    A core, in marine research, is a cylindrical section taken from sediments underlying a water body. Core samplers, the instruments used to obtain cores, range from the simple to the complex. The variety of corer types reflect the breadth and variety of marine research. For example, the simplest corers are hand-operated types used in shallow waters to collect sediment cores containing fauna. ...

  • What are some maintenance Tips for Wildco Core Samplers?

    Cleaning Wildco® corer valves: Keep valves and seats in corer heads free of dirt, grease and oil to maintain a good air seal. It’s best to clean valve and seat after each sample with 70% ethyl alcohol. Chemical removal of rust stains from stainless steel: Stainless steel parts may show a rust stain, indicating an active corrosion cell area which should be deactivated. These are ...

  • What are Characteristics of good core samplers?

    Perpendicular placement: The core sampler must make a vertical or straight entry into sediments to secure a reliably representative cross-section sample. Penetration: It must penetrate the sediments you expect to find and adaptable for many field situations. Core retention: There should be minimal loss of any part of the sample during return to the surface. Maximum sample ...

  • Using a Ground Penetrating Radar (Important terms)

    Air Low dielectric (~1), high velocity material i.e. EM waves travel almost at the speed of light. In air the emission pattern of GPR antennas is broader than in the ground. It is recommended to place the GPR as close to the ground as possible to direct emission energy further into a material. Some applications of GPR include emission exclusively in air.Ground / ...
