Abstract

Abstract

A bulk density sampler, adapted from a conventional commercial type, was constructed and used to obtain soil samples at more than 50 sampling sites from depths to 30 m. This sampler increased the speed with which samples were taken because it was readily added to or detached from the drilling unit between sequences of drilling. Evaluations showed that the sampler obtained bulk density values quite comparable with those found with an undisturbed soil core method.
