Many studies require undisturbed soil cores.
Soil conditions vary widely, depending upon
site characteristics; some of the more difficult
conditions are encountered in such studies as
canal seepage studies and dry rangeland. A
minimum amount of shattering, compaction, or
distortion is desired. In some areas, rocky soil
makes sampling from a pit impractical, and
mountain terrain restricts the sampling equipment
to lightweight, portable devices.
