The 0200 Soil Core Sampler allows the extraction of intact soil cores. This is a "undisturbed" type soil sampler. A core 2-1/4" (5.7 cm) in diameter is extracted and held in a brass cylinder. The cylinder and soil sample can then be placed in a pressure plate extractor or Tempe cell apparatus, and the water-holding characteristics of the sample can be determined. The cylinder can be used to provide a sample of known volume, allowing the bulk density to be determined. The sampler is supplied with two wedge coring tips, driving hammer, core extractor, spanner and strap wrench for replacing coring tips, six cylinder caps, and five brass cylinders; one 6 cm (2.4) long, two 3 cm (1.2 inch) long, and two 1 (0.4 inch) cm long.
