Archive of Geosample Data and Information from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) Geological Collections

Metadata Updated: January 9, 2016

The University of California San Diego (UCSD) Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) is a partner in the Index to Marine and Lacustrine Geological Samples (IMLGS) database, contributing information about SIO Geologcial Collections to the IMLGS to help researchers discover marine geosamples curated by SIO. The SIO partner repository also sends related data, documents, and imagery to NCEI for long-term archive, but the originating institution is the definitive source of information related to their sample collection. SIO Geological Collections are a physical library of priceless geological samples that come from the seafloor and subseafloor of the world?s oceans. The Scripps Core Collection contains nearly 7,000 cores. Dredged rocks in the collection consist of more than 4,000 dredge hauls and related archive materials.
