Sediment analysis


Sediment analysises are performed at all research sites to obtain base data for the physical and numerical modelization.

Using standard procedures the following parameters have been analyzed:


Gravity core sampler for sampling with a
PVC sampling tube
Crane to pull up the gravity core sampler including the sample PVC tube with sediment sample
