Peter Sauer

As the fifth coring expedition in October – November 2018 in Bien Ho maar lake in the Central Highlands of Vietnam, we were delighted to welcome Dr. Peter Sauer from Indiana University. With Peter’s guidance,  the coring team managed to piston-core 15 meters deep into Bien Ho sediment along repeat holes and offsets between the segments of the two piston core sequences. The recovered sediment may reach back 30,000 years. Our coring success is partially based on PVC casing that helped keeping the metal push rods straight and also let us re-enter the same hole repeatedly. Everybody is extremely happy.
