This chapter introduces the principles of coring, including the objectives for taking a good core and the major factors that should be considered to ensure the collection of non disturbed, representative core samples. The chapter also provides an overview of the design, function, and operation of the main types of coring equipment that can be used to sample sediments from a variety of settings including lakes, the ocean, peat bogs, soils, and permafrost. The major advantages and disadvantages of each type of corer are also discussed.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
