Archive of Core and Site/Hole Data and Photographs from the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP)

browse graphicIODP drill sites
Texas A&M University operates the drilling vessel JOIDES Resolution for the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP). The International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) began operating in the fall of 2014 and is conducting worldwide expeditions numbered above 352, taking over where the previous Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) left off at expedition 352. The IODP is an international marine research program designed to explore Earth's history and structure as recorded in seafloor sediments and rocks, and to monitor subseafloor environments, building upon the earlier successes of the Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP), the Ocean Drilling Program (ODP), and the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP).
The IODP is funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation and several countries, only the U.S. component of IODP data is represented in this archive. Late in 2015 or early in 2016, the NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) will begin receiving core data from TAMU for long-term archival. In addition to digital core data available online, core images and other high-volume data are archived offline and available on request.

Dataset Progress Status inProgress
Data Update Frequency Irregular - IODP Expeditions began in 2014. Data are added to the long-term archive as they come out of moratorium, with the first submission anticipated late in 2015 or early in 2016.
Supplemental Information
Data are prepared for archive at NGDC by the IODP staff at Texas A and M University (TAMU), to fulfill the requirements of the US National Science Foundation's "Policy for Oceanographic Data", NSF document 11-004.
Purpose Marine geological and geophysical research. Research into the deep biosphere and the subseafloor ocean; Environmental change, processes and effects; and Solid earth cycles and geodynamics.
