Water and Sediment Sampling

AFFILIATED RESEARCHERS collects water samples utilizing VanDorn-type samplers, and sediment samples utilizing vibracore and ponar equipment and methods.

We utilize our vibracore vessel and the industry recognized Rossfelder P-3 vibracore system to collect vibracore samples in 3” or 4” diameter polycarbonate core-tubes. AFFILIATED RESEARCHERS is capable of vibracoring up to 12’ core-tube lengths in water depths from 2 to 80 foot.

AFFILIATED RESEARCHERS’ Technicians utilize RTK-GPS survey equipment to achieve precise, centimeter-accurate positioning.
