Title: Kemmerer and Releated Items
Description: Water sampling kit including a kemmerer. The Kemmerer, also known as a water bottle is used by lowering it to the desired depth of water to be tested. A messenger (torpedo-like object with slit on the side) is attached to the rope holding kemmerer and slides down to it. It hits the kemmerer and closes it. The kemmerer is then pulled up and tests can be done to find out very useful information about the water at that depth (amount of oxygen dissolved in water, clarity, etc.).
