A method for obtaining undisturbed samples from soil columns


, : A method for obtaining undisturbed samples from soil columns. Agronomy Journal 72(1): 170-172

An apparatus is described for studying soil columns of given bulk density and water-table exposure. The system has a split pipe, containing the soil column, housed in an outer jacket. Peat or mineral soil can be packed into the split pipe to pre-selected bulk density values which vary little with depth.
