Piezometer: Deep sea sediment pore pressure monitoring

Piezometer is designed for in situ measurement and monitoring of pore pressure for geotechnical and hydro-sedimentological applications down to 6000 meters.

 Crucial controls for the stability of sediments: pressure of the fluids between the solid grains of the sediment

Piezometer inserted into the sediment and provides the possibility to measure the pore pressure in different depth levels

 Can be monitored in a short period of hours
