Geotek Multi-Sensor Core Logger MSCL-S


Geotek Multi-Sensor Core Logger MSCL-S
The MSCL enables rapid and accurate geophysical measurements to be taken automatically on sediment or rock cores. The different configurations possible for the MSCL allow for analysis of either whole core sections (when in horizontal configuration) or split-core sections (when in vertical set-up). This logging system has a core pusher on a track with a short belt which pushes the cores through the complete sensor array by butting adjacent cores together to obtain continuous core data sets. Core sections between 50 – 150 mm in diameter and up to 1.55 m long can be logged at spatial intervals as low as a few millimeters. Cores must be contained in plastic liners. Measurement sensors are available for density/porosity by gamma ray attenuation, P-wave velocity of compressional waves, magnetic susceptibility, electrical resistivity, reflectance, and imaging.

Research Facility

The Earth Resources, Research and Analysis (TERRA) Facility
Memorial University
St. John's
Newfoundland and Labrador (NL)

The Earth Resources Research and Analysis (TERRA) Facility is housed in the Department of Earth Sciences. TERRA provides chemical and physical analyses utilizing a large variety of instrumentation. Most laboratories have standard fee-for-service packages that are offered to the geological, archaelogical, environmental and biological communities. Research into new applications and techniques is on-going.
