SCIMPI is a new type of instrument developed to make in-situ measurements of temperature, pressure and electrical resistivity in sediments up to hundreds of metres below the seafloor. It is an alternative to a CORK installation, which is more complex, time-consuming and expensive. The modular design allows SCIMPI instruments to be configured based on particular study goals and subseafloor characteristics.
SHRIMPI is a smaller single-module experimental instrument based on the SCIMPI technology.
