Coastal Group Facilities and Equipment

vibracoring in the DanubeThe right tool makes the job easier: here at the Coastal Group we've learned that well over the years. Nothing but the best will suffice - we use truly state-of-the-art equipment that allows us to conduct rapid field surveys and in-depth sedimentological analyses. One of our newest acquisitions is an ITRAX X-ray Fluorescence Corescanner, which produces speedy measurements of major element composition in sediment cores and high-resolution radiography. We also possess two Canberra Germanium Gamma Detectors, used to quantify radioisotopes in sediments. For field work, we utilize a variety of modern geophysical equipment, including CHIRP sonar and Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), and a wide array of coring rigs.
