Dr. Bower explains how a deep-ocean sample bottle operates. The open pressure-proof bottle is attached to a cable that is gradually lowered into the water. An electronic signal sent from an on-deck unit instructs the bottle to close at a desired depth to collect water. This water can be analyzed for concentrations of salt, oxygen, and other properties, depending on the objectives of the experiment.
