Researchers have engineered state-of-the-art equipment that facilitate the collection of down-hole measurements. These tools, which will be available for use by other scientists, are futher described below.
MDHDS – Motion De-Coupled Hydraulic Delivery System:
A method for inserting penetrometers in borehole.
T2P – Temperature 2 Pressure Probe:
A penetrometer for measurement of pressure & temperature.
