A Photographic Compass Inclinometer for the Orientation of Deep Sea Sediment Samples
Abstract:An inexpensive instrument is briefly described which has been designed to provide a method of recording the orientation of deep-sea sampling devices. A compass and bull's-eye spirit level are photographed by a single shot camera shortly after the sampling device hits the bottom. The azimuth of a line on the device may be measured to within 2 degrees, and the inclination of the device to within 1/2 degree.
