Lamination Sampling Technique for Unconsolidated Sediments
AbstractAn adjustable shop wrench to which thin plexiglass squares were mounted as jaws was used to sample unconsolidated sediments. The jaw opening could be set so as to match perfectly the thickness of the lamina to be sampled. Samples could be taken with little risk of contamination from adjacent strata and could be inspected before acceptance because of the transparency of the plexiglass slides.
