Sediment Description

Sediment colour is described using the Munsell soil colour charts as the core is extruded. Colour and the point of any colour change is noted in the core log book which also holds the routine sediment analysis data. Troels-Smith description of the sediment may also be needed, in which case the project leader will indicate the degree of detail required.
