    Abstract

    Two samples developed at the University of New Brunswick for sampling of peat are described. One is a 100-mm-diameter piston sampler with a Plexiglas insert sample holder and the other is a 250-mm-square block sampler. The samplers have been extensively tested and used in Sphagnum and sedge peat and have also been used successfully in soft-to-almost-fluid organic diatomaceous soils.
