Archive of Geosample Data and Information from the University of Rhode Island (URI) Graduate School of Oceanography (GSO), Marine Geological Samples Laboratory (MGSL)

Metadata Updated: February 6, 2017

The Marine Geological Samples Laboratory (MGSL) of the Graduate School of Oceanography (GSO), University of Rhode Island 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 partner repository also sends some 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. The MGSL serves as the central repository for dredge rocks, deep-sea cores, grabs and land-based geological samples collected by the Marine Geology and Geophysics group at GSO/URI. The facility is located on the Narragansett Bay Campus of the University of Rhode Island in Narragansett, R.I. A large part of the funding for curatorial activities in the MGSL is obtained from the Ocean Science Division of the National Science Foundation. The MGSL maintains a large collection of marine geological samples
