An easy to operate, manual corer for sampling at different depths in sediment and wet soils, including below the groundwater level. The Peat or Russian Corer is a kind of gouge auger. The peat sampler is pushed into the soil manually.Contact Van Walt
The sample containing part is a half cylinder. At the correct sampling depth the complete sampler is given half a turn clockwise (180°). During the turning the fin remains in position which allows the half cylinder to be filled and closed again.
