A new sampler for collection of interstitial water from sandy sediments

  title={A new sampler for collection of interstitial water from sandy sediments},
  author={Richard L. Whitman},
An inexpensive, easily constructed apparatus for collecting interstitial water from sandy substrates is described and evaluated against two other devices. Results indicate that these samplers yield comparable dissolved oxygen determinations, but vary in terms of repeatability, efficiency, construction complexity and sturdiness.
