Archive of Geosample Information from Scientific Ocean Drilling

browse graphicIODP drill sites
Texas A and M University (TAMU), JOIDES Resolution Science Operator of the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP),
is a partner in the Index to Marine and Lacustrine Geological Samples (IMLGS) database, contributing information to the IMLGS to help researchers discover geological samples curated in their facility.
The IODP core repositories archive and make available core material from the current IODP, and also from its predecessor programs, the
Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP), Ocean Drilling Program (ODP), and Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP). Core material is available
to researchers through the IODP Curator.
TAMU also contributed information to the IMLGS describing cores from the former IODP and ODP in their role as Science Operator for those programs.
Information describing DSDP cores for the IMLGS was prepared by the former DSDP data management group operated by the
Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO). TAMU periodically sends post-moratorium IODP core data, documents, and imagery to NCEI for long-term archive. The latest IODP data, and
full-resolution TIFF images are available from the Data Librarian at TAMU. Full-resolution TIFF images in the NCEI archive are offline only.

Digital image
Digital document - digital representation of a primarily textual item (can contain illustrations also)
Dataset Progress Status Ongoing
Data Update Frequency: Irregular - No data have been received for the new International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) cores; Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) Expeditions were completed in 2013. DSDP and ODP Legs are also complete. Data will continue to be added to the long-term archive as they come out of moratorium.
Supplemental Information:
These data were 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.

    Lineage information for: dataset
    Lineage Statement Information about cores obtained by the Glomar Challenger during the Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) was compiled by the DSDP Project Office at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Information pertaining to cores obtained by the JOIDES Resolution during the Ocean Drilling Program (ODP), Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP), and International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) was compiled by Texas A and M University (TAMU), Science Operator for the ODP and IODP. Digital data origin varies by program. DSDP data were exported from the SIO Burroughs server. Some ODP data prior to Leg 129 were exported from the 1032 database management system at TAMU. ODP and IODP core data from JOIDES Resolution Expeditions 129 to 317 were exported from the JANUS database system at TAMU. Data for Expedition 317 and higher were processed through the LIMS system at TAMU.
