Crewmember collects sediment core sample

Emily Osborne collects a sediment core sample from aboard NOAA Ship Ronald H. Brown boring a tube into the seafloor and then bringing up a column, or core, of sediment intact within the tube. Caps can automatically seal off the ends of the core after it has pulled up a sample, protecting the sample and keeping it intact.
