Core Sampling

Ægir Divers worked with BMT Scientific Marine Services to conduct core sampling from the seabeds of French Island and Hastings in Western Port Bay and Patterson River and Mordialloc Creek in Port Phillip.

Our commercial vessel ‘Torden’ utilized its onboard crane and capstan winch to allow scientists to launch & recover heavy coring equipment easily into position enabling a quick and effective sampling procedure. The forward deck acted as a very convenient workbench for measuring cores, sample collection and photo records.
