Multi-Sensor Core Logger (MSCL)

Manufacturer : GEOTEK Ltd.
Type : GEOTEK MSCL-S

This system is used for nondestructive measurement of the sediment core sample. The density, magnetic susceptibility and moisture content of sediment sample are measured by this system. This system adopted digital linescan imaging system from MR09-03 Leg2 cruise.

Core sample color reference system (MR09-03 Leg2 - )

Manufacturer : Konica Minolta Holdings, Inc.
Type : CM-700D

Core color tone is evaluated relatively by this system. Since the sediment color depends on contained substance and environment of sedimentation, the change of color tone presents the environmental change.

Core sample color reference system

Manufacturer : Konica Minolta Holdings, Inc.
Type : CM-2002

Core color tone is evaluated relatively by this system. Since the sediment color depends on contained substance and environment of sedimentation, the change of color tone presents the environmental change.

Photographic recording device for core samples

Manufacturer : NIKON CORPORATION
Type :

It is the camera which photographs the split sediment core sample. Since the color and quality of the split sediment core changes immediately, it should be recorded by photograph using this device.

Polarizing microscope

Manufacturer : Olympus Corporation
Type : BX50

This microscope is used to identify the minerals and microfossils in the sediment.
