Close up view of the geology comprising of an old alluvium. Coarse grain quartz can be seen very clearly on the surface of the outcrop
Sediment grab sampler was used to grab sediment samples from the bed bottom of the straight.
Two of my research assistants pulling the heavy cable attached to the grab sampler apparatus.
Scoping and sampling for the dredged sample. It is a black clay, and has a strong odour (rich in organic matter).
Photo taken on the boat after the completion of sampling. Everyone was happy!
