Aboard RV Oceanus OC2006A, we will be using various sediment collection techniques, and data measurements for the materials collected. This introduction series of blogs will provide a base understanding of these systems and data that are useful for oceanography.
Our coring techniques include Piston Cores, Gravity Cores and Multi-Core. Our sample collection and shipboard measurements consist of pore water chemistry, multi-sensor track, and Plankton Net tows. Below are some images of each of our tools; in the coming days, we will update you on our travels and provide a more detailed description of how the instruments are used and what we can learn from them.
