Paleomagnetism and Marine geology


Core opening bench

Friday 22 February 2008

With this bench, cores of different diameters and lengths can be cut in halves. Although the tubes are generally made of PVC, it is possible to cut some metallic tubes by changing the cutting blades. From half cores, we can :

- Photograph the sediment with the SmartCIS core scanner

- Measure the density and the magnetic susceptibility with the MSCL

- Quantify the sediment color with the spectrophotometer

- Take a U-Channel that will be run through the cryogenic magnetometer.
