Abstract

Soft fill materials can be adequately sampled with hand-operated piston samplers, thereby obviating the need for expensive supporting platforms to accommodate heavy truck-mounted equipment. The dredge utilized and a specially-designed flap valve sediment sampler, enabled soft harbor sediments to be recovered successfully with a reasonable amount of effort and newly-placed fine-grained materials with high water content to be sampled with the flap valve.
