Abstract

A revealing picture of the internal sedimentary structure of unconsolidated sediments can be obtained by utilizing special sampling techniques which employ simple but small (8".3")".3") sample boxes. The material collected is treated with Araldite Casting Resin F and Hardener 902 or 951 or with Epocast 530 2A and B so that a representative 'peel' can be removed for study. The sampling technique is presently restricted to material that is not underwater; good results can be obtained in just a few days, especially in non-clayey sediments.
