Description Laboratory specializing in geotechnical studies of marine, estuarine, lacustrine, and terrestrial sediment.

Capabilities include fully automated computer-controlled testing of consolidation, permeability, and shear strength properties as well as non-destructive analysis of whole-core sediment sections using a whole-core logging system.

Extremely useful in submarine and earthquake failure analysis.

State-of-the-art computer controlled geotechnical testing equipment.

GEOTEK Multi-Sensor Logging System (MSL). Non-destructively provides data on P-wave velocity, bulk density, and magnetic susceptibility in 1-cm increments.
