Is there a method to determine the dry density of a split spoon sample without resorting to the use of mercury or by measuring the dimensions? I don't like using mercury (I am highly accident prone), and some soils don't lend themselves well to cutting into nice even dimensions (ie: sandy lean clays with gravel).
Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.
