Archive of Geosample Information from Scientific Ocean Drilling

Metadata Updated: February 2, 2017

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.
