Seabed sampling experts Ocean Scientific International Ltd has delivered a 12-station multiple corer to Colorado-based ASC, the support contractor to the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), for use in Antarctic waters.

The corer will be deployed by upcoming projects in the International Thwaites Glacier Collaboration, a joint project of the United Kingdom’s Natural Environment Research Council and NSF’s Office of Polar Programs, which manages the U.S. Antarctic Program.

The corer will be used to investigate the role of the Southern Ocean biological pump in regulating atmospheric carbon dioxide, and to determine the sediment-water fluxes of dissolved compounds in West Antarctic Shelf sediments.
