Data Identification
Abstract: The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) Seafloor Samples Laboratory 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 may also send 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 WHOI Seafloor Samples Laboratory receives funding from the US National Science Foundation and is located in the McLean Laboratory on WHOI's Quissett Campus.
Purpose: Information about the WHOI geosample collection is archived at NCEI to promote public access to research results and to increase their discoverability via the IMLGS.

Quality
Scope: Dataset
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 IGSNs/links to related resources, where known, and may perform cursory visual inspection of data for reasonableness, asking the originator for guidance on discrepancies. Preliminary processed data are placed in a test database for inspection by the originator, and iteratively corrected until the originator approves their publication to the production database. Data may also be updated/corrected at any time, at the originator's request.
