To do this, our team operate state-of-the-art equipment, from auger drilling to soil probes, allowing us to collect samples at a variety of depths.


Vibracoring allows us to extract unconsolidated sediment cores with minimal disturbance. Unlike excavation methods such as dredging, vibracoring minimises the impact it has on the surrounding environment, can operate in a variety of depths and is often cost effective, as the process can be carried out by an individual or small team.
