NOAA Photo Library Image - ship4444

Figure 67. Pelometer for the rapid sorting of sediments in water. Professor Julien Thoulet used this device on board research ships to rapidly determine the nature of seafloor sediments. It would allow quick classification into a single category such as mud, sandy silt, or muddy sand for entry into a station log. Thoulet used the pelometer described by Bouquet de la Gyre.
