English term or phrase: cruciform or template sampling
Hei!

Det gjelder prøvetaking i forbindelse med bentiske undersøkelser (marinbiologi).
Jeg har ikke greid å finne ut hva dette kalles på norsk. Håper noen kan hjelpe.

Litt usikker å om "cruciform sampling" og "template sampling" er det samme eller to forskjellige typer prøvetaking, siden dette ikke kommer klart frem av teksten (det står som ovenfor: "cruciform or template sampling"). Hvis det viser seg å være to forskjellige typer, oppretter jeg naturligvis et spørsmål til.

Tusen takk for hjelpen! :)

prøvetaking i rett vinkel / ortogonale
Explanation:
"cruciform" sampling is done on two perpendicular axes x and y. It's less clear what "template" sampling is, but my impression is that here it's a generalization to axes in n-dimensional space - see e.g. "A review of methods for spike sorting: the detection and classification of neural action potentials", Lewicki, Michael S.

If it's for a statistical audience, you could maybe use something like "cruciform" (korsformet)?

"grid prøvetaking" might be an option for cruciform - this is common in agricultural and sea-floor sampling.

It hard to be sure what's meant by template though!

Asker: Thank you very much for your reply! :) The text is actually about marine biology, but a part of the text refers to benthic assessments and it is mentioned that previously "cruciform or template sampling" was used for this purpose.
