Abstract : The patent describes a deep-penetrating ocean bottom soil sampler employing a plurality of telescoping tubes that may be sequentially driven downwardly to penetrate the ocean floor a distance equal to approximately one-half of the cumulative length of the tubes. As the sampler with extended tubes is withdrawn, it extracts an elongate core comprising a representative ocean bottom soil sample.
