Grain size analysis
Summary: 5 good cores were collected at Station 3. One of these collected for Linda Kalnejais for her erosion experiment. Only two cores were collected at Station 2 because of a malfunction of the bottom closure mechanism. It did not snap into place immediately after pullout, allowing the sand to fall out of the core barrel.
