This side-filling sampler collects uncompressed samples from wetlands and estuaries. The chambered-type corer collects samples which are not compressed or shortened during recovery, unlike samples taken with end-filling core samplers. Simply deploy the corer (in the closed position) to the desired depth. The corer is rotated clockwise 180° so that the sharpened edge of the chamber cuts a sediment core which is contained by the cover plate. During retrieval, the cover plate's counterclockwise rotation extrudes the undisturbed sample. Ideal for use in woody peat, sand, silt, and clay. Corer measures 5 cm in diameter and 50 cm in length with a sample volume of 10 ml/cm. The optional bronze slide hammer assembly helps drive and retrieve the corer in compact deposits. The lightweight, aluminum holobar extension rods allow one-man operation of the sampler from a boat. Additional rods (4.0 cm diameter) are available in two lengths. 1.2 m and 2.4 m. Corer includes plastic corer head, two 1.2 m aluminum  extension rods, turning handle and carrying case.
