The peat profile sampler, type Wardenaar, is an apparatus for sampling intact, undisturbed peat profiles in peat lands up to a depth of 1 meter. The peat profile sampler consists of a rectangular stainless steel box casing, divided lengthwise into two halves, with very sharp specially shaped cutting edges at the base. The handgrip hinging with both halves allows both halves to be pushed into the soil alternatingly. A clamp mechanism on the grip allows the profile to be clamped in the sampler when it is extracted from the soil. A small diameter tube is fitted to break the suction of the sample.
The standard set contains, among other items: the peat profile sampler, tools, lever beam with support and a hand pump.
