Archive of Geosample Data and Information from the University of Wisconsin Ice Island T3 Core Collection

browse graphicimage of sea floor sample locations
From 1963 to 1972, 349 piston cores were collected from the Arctic Ocean using Ice Island T3 as a
sampling platform and sent to the University of Wisconsin-Madison for curation. Dr. David Clark of the University of
Wisconsin-Madison Department of Geoscience made a one-time contribution of metadata describing these Ice Island T3 piston cores
to the Index to Marine and Lacustrine Geological Samples (IMLGS) database. No further data are expected from this
core repository. All cores in this collection are from latitudes above 77 degrees north in the Arctic Ocean.
