Abstract:

A lightweight sampler has been constructed to provide large cores from frazil ice deposits. Samples containing frazil ice particles ranging in size from 1 mm to over 70 mm, including the interstitial water, were successfully recovered during field tests. These samples were nearly undisturbed while confined in the sample tube, based on a comparison with samples acquired using a freeze phobe technique.
