Piezometers measure pore fluid pressures in shallow marine sediments.
Vibrating wire (VW) piezometers are used for monitoring slope-sediment dynamics. An IFREMER-developed piezometer extends four metres into sediments and its needle-like probe is six centimetres in diameter. It is equipped with four pore pressure and four temperature sensors.
