Procedures to prevent the occurrence of potentially dangerous situation during the operation of the Mackereth 1-metre mini or short sediment corer

John Hilton, Peter Allen

Abstract

During the 1950s and 1960s, F. J. H. Mackereth developed and published the
plans for a series of pneumatic samplers for lake sediments (Mackereth 1958,
1969). Since then these corers have been used very successfully by large
numbers of researchers in many institutions. Unfortunately, as the equipment
was continually evolving during ensuing research, no user manuals, beyond the
original publication, have been published since John Mackereth's untimely death in 1972.
