Abstract
The paper describes the main features and initial underwater field-testing results of a remotely operated submersible drill rig designed to obtain continuous cores of soil and/or rock up to 6m long in water depths of 200m. The rig mast angle is hydraulically actuated covering 90° of altitude. This enables both a fully horizontal position used for deployment onto, and recovery of the rig from, the seabed, as well as a fully vertical position during coring. The frame is equipped with positioning ...
