Bold sampling videos

On the Bold cruise I took some videos to show what the mud sampling looks like.

This is the USGS SEABOSS sampling platform being deployed and recovered.

The SEABOSS has a Van Veen grab sampler that is opened to take the mud out for grain size and infauna sampling.

The mud collected for infauna sampling is first sieved then stored on ice in plastic jars with formalin.
