Multi-sensor core logger

A woman wearing a lab coat and rubber gloves stands in a lab near an apparatus with a long track that holds a sediment core.

Detailed Description

The first stop for many sediment cores is the Geotek MSCL or multi-sensor core logger. The logger automatically measures P-wave velocity, magnetic susceptibility, electrical resistivity, and gamma density at intervals from 1 millimeter to 1 centimeter along cores up to 1.5 meters long. The device can also automatically line-scan photograph cores that have been split, at a resolution of 10 microns.
