Wrapping a sediment core half

A woman wearing a lab coast and rubber gloves stretches a piece of plastic wrap over an exposed sediment core on a lab table.

Detailed Description

Each half of a split sediment core is wrapped in plastic to prevent drying and contamination. For long-term storage, we can shrink-wrap one half with a thick film that prevents moisture loss.
