Figure 35. Brouardel surface sampler, improvement of previous instrument, was
designed by Jean Brouardel and Jean Vernet and constructed by Jean Comelli. This
instrument was inspired by Bernard M. Jenkins' Surface Mud Sampler, created for
the limnological studies of Clifford H. Mortimer. It was used to sample bottom
water and sediment simultaneously. It was first tested off the EIDER in 1954.
