MODERN APPROACH TO THE USE OF HOLLOW STEM AUGER

THIS PAPER DESCRIBES THE EVOLUTION AND USE OF A HIGHLY EFFICIENT AND ECONOMICAL HOLLOW STEM AUGER SYSTEM DEVELOPED TO PROVIDE SAMPLING CAPABILITIES AT FASTER RATES THAN HERETOFORE POSSIBLE. AMONG MANY OTHER ADVANTAGES IT PERMITS THE USE OF THE COMMON OPEN-TYPE SAMPLER WITH RESULTS COMMENSURATE TO THAT EXPECTED FROM PISTON-TYPE SAMPLERS. THE SYSTEM IS ACTUALLY A COMBINATION OF EQUIPMENT AND TECHNIQUE AND IT MAY BEST BE UNDERSTOOD BY CONSIDERING EACH OF THE TWO SEPARATELY. /AUTHOR/
