MSCL-V

All that required for measuring P-wave, Density, MagSus and Resistivity at Sea.

Vertically-orientated Multi Sensor Core Logger unsurpassed for sediment-water interface properties studies

  • Key Features

    • Robust, designed for off-shore labs. Small footprint.
    • Sediment - water interface studies
    • Measures P-wave, Density, MagSus and Resistivity.

The vertically-orientated Multi Sensor Core Logger (MSCL-V) is ideal for studying the properties of the sediment-water interface or for laboratories where space is at a premium. The first of this type of system was sold to the NATO Undersea Research Centre in La Spezia, Italy.

The MSCL-V consists of two main subsystems:

  1. The mechanical assembly and
  2. The electronics/computer console

The mechanical assembly consists of a rugged anodised aluminium framework, suitable for use in a shore-based or shipboard laboratory environment, and contains the core section support framework, the sensor tracking system and the sensor systems themselves. Some subsystem electronics are housed within the unit.

The MSCL-V mechanical assembly accommodates core sections of up to 1500 mm long with overall diameters (including end caps) of between 50 mm and 150 mm. The core section stands on a plinth (requires an adaptor for each core size) and is secured at the top using a sliding clamp arrangement.
