Abstract:

A sampler which obtains leak-proof sealed water samples from any depth has been developed for the study of dissolved gases. Closing of the sampler is activated by the tripping of the Nansen bottle to which it is attached. The water collected by the sampler is thus taken at the same time and place at which the Nansen bottle measures thermometric depth and temperature and collects water for measurement of salinity and other properties. Other advantages include ease of operation and low cost. The sampler has been tested at sea under a wide range of conditions.
