Archive of Geosample Data and Information from the Polar Rock Repository (PRR), Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center (BPCRC), the Ohio State University (OSU)

Metadata Updated: November 24, 2022

The Polar Rock Repository (PRR) is part of the Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center (BPCRC) at the Ohio State University. The PRR 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 and available for further research. Only underwater samples (dredges, trawls, and grabs) curated by the PRR are described in the IMLGS. The originating institution is the definitive source of information related to their sample collection. Each PRR entry in the IMLGS links back to a definitive web page for that sample at the PRR.

Lineage Data are received by NCEI on an intermittent basis from the repository. Incoming data are checked for adherence to controlled vocabularies, illegal data types in numeric fields, and out of range latitudes/longitudes. NCEI adds links to related resources, where known, and may perform cursory visual inspection of data for reasonableness, asking the originator for guidance on discrepancies. NCEI informs the originator upon ingest of data to the IMLGS database, after which the originator provides one final quality control using the IMLGS map viewer. Data may also be updated/corrected at any time, at the originator's request.
