Description: Technical note
Introduction: Vibratory corers are a practical method of obtaining disturbed cohesive (clay) and cohesionless (sand) samples onshore and offshore in the coastal zone. Two small vibratory corers have been developed at CERC that can be used to obtain near and onshore samples. They are similar to the commercially available vibracorer. This technical note briefly describes three types of vibratory cores and discusses geological and geotechnical considerations for their use in coastal engineering.
