Details

The AMS "valved core tip" fills the sampler without losing the sample upon retrieval. The sampler uses a disposable plastic soil catcher that fits on the end of a 2" x 12" plastic liner. The core tip allows the plastic soil core catcher and liner to fit snugly over the lip of the core tip. Once the soil core catcher and liner are placed on the core tip they are loaded into a standard multi-stage base section and screwed together.

During deployment , the flap cap opens and allows excess air and water to escape through the top of the sampler eliminating pressure buildup. The sediment enters and fills the liner. When the sampler is lifted the flap closes and creates suction to assist the soil core catcher in retaining the sample. Up to 4 optional 12" sections can be added.
What's Included:
  • (1) Multi-stage flap check cap
  • (1) Multi-stage sludge core tip
  • (1) 12" multi-stage SCS base
  • (1) 2" x 12" plastic liner
  • (2) Plastic end caps
  • (1) 2" soil core catcher
  • (1) Universal slip wrench

Amazon sediment studied through Andes trip down tributary

A team of researchers led by scientists from the University of South Carolina Dornsife traveled to the Peruvian jungle to understand how sediment and plant matter travel down the Andes Mountains and into the Amazon River system, according a first-person account from Sarah Feakins, assistant professor of earth sciences at USC Dornsife. The team focused on a tributary to the Amazon River, the Kosnipata River. They started at the headwaters, traveling up treacherous gravel mountain roads. They ended in the Amazonian floodplain, where Feakins said the river was orange from colloids in the soil. The team spent most of their time collecting and filtering water to obtain sediment samples. Feakins described the work as collecting by day and filtering by night.

50-year fertilizer study shows mixed results on soil quality

A new report authored by researchers from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln suggests that the use of inorganic nitrogen and phosphorus for fertilization improves crop yields, but can have negative impacts on soil quality, the  American Society of Agronomy has reported . A study of crop lands in western Kansas has shown that inorganic fertilization increases organic carbon stocks while damaging soil’s structural quality. Researchers collected soil samples from experimental fields fertilized with various amounts of inorganic fertilizers to determine how different nutrient levels might impact soil quality. The results showed that applying nitrogen and phosphorus at high rates can expedite soil erosion and cause other structural issues.

USGS Scientists Identify Causes of High Concentrations of Radium in Aquifer Water

What exactly is happening far beneath our feet is typically a bit mysterious, requiring some special effort to study. Starting in the 1950s, reports of radium concentrations in excess of 5 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) in water from the Cambrian-Ordovician aquifer system started scientists thinking about the issue of radium in this massive aquifer which provides more than 630 million gallons of water each day to the public supply in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Missouri. Now, USGS scientists have published new research results, available online here , revealing how much radium is in the aquifer, and shedding light on how it gets there.
