VentDB is an effort funded by the US National Science Foundation to build and operate a data management system for hydrothermal spring geochemistry that will host and serve the full range of compositional data acquired on seafloor hydrothermal vents from all tectonic settings. VentDB supports the preservation and dissemination of analytical data on hydrothermal springs and plumes.
VentDB complements existing geochemical data collections such as SedDB and PetDB. VentDB can accommodate published historical data as well as legacy and new data that investigators contribute.
Content of VentDB is static and will not be updated until further notice.
