The sampling of sediments from the sea floor is an integral part of marine geological research. However, as the sea floor is not directly accessible, marine geologists have to rely on instruments which they have to lower to the sea floor from seagoing vehicles, including e.g. vessels and drilling platforms. This paper aims to summarise the present state of the art of these sampling methods and tries to give an outlook on future prospects of scientific coring and drilling of marine sediments.
