Equipment Used
grab sampler
To collect sediment cores in order to characterize sediment erodibility in
Capitol Lake.
Information to be Derived
Sediment erodibility, grain size, bulk density
Sediment cores were collected to be analyzed with a device that measures
sediment erodibility (sedFlume).
Boat was General Administration (Washington State) pontoon boat (no name).
