The laboratory technique described for obtaining thin horizontal sections of prepared saturated soil cores is very simple, quick, and employs a one-piece assembly. It can be used effectively for monitoring various chemical, electrochemical, and physical parameters of soils incubated under flooded conditions. An average coefficient of variation in sample weights of 4.79% was obtained with this technique for sectioning of the cores prepared in the laboratory, which compares well with results obtained using other more complex apparati.
