The Box corer is a marine geological and biological sampling tool for soft sediments in lakes or oceans. It is deployed from a research vessel with a deep sea wire and suitable for any water depth. It is designed for a minimum of disturbance of the sediment surface by bow wave effects which is important for quantitative investigations of the benthos micro- to macrofauna, geochemical processes, sampling of bottom water or sedimentology. The large box corer version with an area of 2,500 cm? is frequently used on research vessels since the 1980th years. This data set is a publication of the engeneering drawings.
