Ocean Science Journalism Fellow Jane Qiu helps oceanographer emeritus and biologist George Hampson deploy a Van Veen Grab Sampler off the fantail of R/V Tioga during a day cruise in September 2009. This sediment sampler has a clam shell-type scoop setup and can extract samples up to 20 centimeters deep. Once the samples are recovered, they are taken to the onboard laboratory for further analysis.
