Orientation of the Sediment Sample

Post by grantg012 » Sun Oct 25, 2020 4:07 pm

Are there any specifics for how the sediment sample will be positioned at the end of the tube?

Hi Grant / Purdue:

There are not exact specifications, as divers will be resetting the sediment sample by hand. But they will be instructed to set it parallel to the pipe (as shown in the photo in the prop building instructions) with the rope handle on top. Note that a micro-ROV moving roughly through the pipe might disturb this orientation.

Good luck.
