Ekman Grab

Ekman Grab soft sediment sampler. Sediments must be free from debris and plant growth. Because a disturbed sample is taken from very soft top layers and spring loaded jaws prevent loss of material you must ensure no small stones or stalks prevent the closure of grab and so loss of your sample.
