A suction corer utilizing an expendable plastic core liner was developed to sample sand strata in the tidal-flat environment. The device is lightweight, simple to operate, and contains a minimum number of moving parts. With it, continuous cores up to 10 feet in length and retaining sediment interstitial water, were obtained.
