Abstract :

The collection of settling sediments from harsh environments such as the deepest ocean and the arctic basin, is particularly challenging. Sediment trapping at the Japan Trench with depth of more than nine kilometers has been successfully undertaken since 1986. The deepest trap is positioned at a depth of 8.8 km. Sediment collecting at the permanently ice-covered Arctic Basin has been done using Ice-Ocean Environmental buoys.
