Sediment Sampling

Solutions

A range of seabed sampling equipment is available from OSIL, from off the shelf items such as grabs and box corers to bespoke coring systems including gravity corers, piston corers (up to 42m) and vibrocorers for dense or compacted sediments. A range of multiple corers can provide samples with an undisturbed sediment/water interface.

Water sampling devices are also available, including single or multiple remote operating bottles. Two sizes of Marine Snow Catcher are available, and the rectangular midwater trawl (RMT) net provides an opening and closing net system for the collection of mid-water plankton and nekton.
