The Augering method uses the rotary head with a selection of augers to core into softer sediments. Either a Continuous Flight Auger can be used to produce a sample such as the one illustrated in figure 1, or a Hollow-stem Auger which produces a larger bulk sample (figure 2).
Both these augering methods do not provide a core encased in a plastic liner, but usually recover material as bulk samples.
