Multi-Sensor Core Logger-Standard

The MSCL-S is fitted with P-wave velocity, gamma density (bulk density), magnetic susceptibility and non-contact resistivity sensors, together with a Geoscan III full colour digital linescan imaging system which produces RGB images and profile data from cores.  These sensors produce a stream of precise, accurate measurements at a spatial resolution as low as a few mm, that can be used by scientists and engineers, both intrinsically for their actual values, or as proxies for changes in lithology, texture or sedimentary origin.
