Projects in the International Scientific Continental Drilling Program (ICDP) produce large amounts of data. Since the start of ICDP, data sharing has played an important part in ICDP projects, and the ICDP Operational Support Group, which provides the infrastructure for data capturing for many ICDP projects, has facilitated dissemination of data within project groups. With the online Scientific Drilling Database (SDDB;, ICDP and GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam (GFZ), Germany created a platform for the public dissemination of drilling data
Open Core Data is a data infrastructure focused on making data from scientific continental and ocean drilling projects semantically discoverable, persistent, citable, and approachable to maximize their utility to present and future geoscience researchers.
Welcome to the home page of the Rutgers/New Jersey Geological and Water Survey Core Repository. We are an official repository of the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP), hosting Legs 150X and 174AX onshore cores drilled as part of the NJ/Mid-Atlantic Transect, and the New Jersey Geological and Water Survey (NJGWS). Cores from other ODP/IODP repositories are available through ODP. In addition to ODP/IODP cores, we are the repository for: - 1.) 6668 m of Newark Basin Drilling Project Triassic cores (e.g., Olsen, Kent, et al. 1996) - 2.) 5182 m of the Army Corps of Engineers Passaic Tunnel Project Jurassic cores - 3.) 457 m of post-impact cores from the Chesapeake Bay Impact Structure Deep Hole - 4.) Cores obtained from the Northern North Atlantic as part of the IODP Expedition 303/306 - 5.) Cores from various rift and drift basins on the eastern and Gulf Coasts of the U.S. - 6.) Geological samples from the New Jersey Geological and Water Survey (NJGWS) and United States Geological Survey (USGS) including 304 m of continuous NJGWS/USGS NJ coastal plain cores.
The Site Survey Data Bank (SSDB) is a repository for site survey data submitted in support of International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) proposals and expeditions. SSDB serves different roles for different sets of users.
The Bremen Core Repository - BCR, for International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP), Integrated Ocean Discovery Program (IODP), Ocean Drilling Program (ODP), and Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) cores from the Atlantic Ocean, Mediterranean and Black Seas and Arctic Ocean is operated at University of Bremen within the framework of the German participation in IODP. It is one of three IODP repositories (beside Gulf Coast Repository (GCR) in College Station, TX, and Kochi Core Center (KCC), Japan). One of the scientific goals of IODP is to research the deep biosphere and the subseafloor ocean. IODP has deep-frozen microbiological samples from the subseafloor available for interested researchers and will continue to collect and preserve geomicrobiology samples for future research.
The International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) is an international marine research collaboration that explores Earth's history and dynamics using ocean-going research platforms to recover data recorded in seafloor sediments and rocks and to monitor subseafloor environments. IODP depends on facilities funded by three platform providers with financial contributions from five additional partner agencies. Together, these entities represent 26 nations whose scientists are selected to staff IODP research expeditions conducted throughout the world's oceans. IODP expeditions are developed from hypothesis-driven science proposals aligned with the program's science plan Illuminating Earth's Past, Present, and Future. The science plan identifies 14 challenge questions in the four areas of climate change, deep life, planetary dynamics, and geohazards. Until 2013 under the name: International Ocean Drilling Program.
The BGS is a data-rich organisation with over 400 datasets in its care; including environmental monitoring data, digital databases, physical collections (borehole core, rocks, minerals and fossils), records and archives. Our data is managed by the National Geoscience Data Centre.
The International Ocean Discovery Program’s (IODP) Gulf Coast Repository (GCR) is located in the Research Park on the Texas A&M University campus in College Station, Texas. This repository stores DSDP, ODP, and IODP cores from the Pacific Ocean, the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico, and the Southern Ocean. A satellite repository at Rutgers University houses New Jersey/Delaware land cores 150X and 174AX.
The geophysical database, GERDA, is a strong tool for data storage, handling and QC. Data are uploaded to and downloaded from the GERDA database through this website. GERDA is the Danish national database on shallow geophysical data. Since its establishment in 1998-2000, the database has been continuously developed. The database is hosted by the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS).
The main focus of GDC is to archive marine geological data, especially from Scripps expeditions, making them accessible for scientific and educational use worldwide. The GDC currently has three main projects: SIOExplorer, Rolling Deck to Repository (R2R), and the Site Survey Data Bank (SSDB).
World Data Center for Oceanography serves to store and provide to users data on physical, chemical and dynamical parameters of the global ocean as well as oceanography-related papers and publications, which are either came from other countries through the international exchange or provided to the international exchange by organizations of the Russian Federation
LIAG's Geophysics Information System (FIS GP) serves for the storage and supply of geophysical measurements and evaluations of LIAG and its partners. The architecture of the overall system intends a subdivision into an universal part (superstructure) and into several subsystems dedicated to geophysical methods (borehole geophysics, gravimetry, magnetics, 1D/2D geoelectrics, underground temperatures, seismics, VSP, helicopter geophysics and rock physics. The building of more subsystems is planned.
The Marine Geoscience Data System (MGDS) provides free public access to data collected throughout the global oceans. Our data portals serve different communities of NSF-funded researchers providing direct access to data, program-relevant information, and tools for helping them satisfy their data sharing obligations. Our tools and services provide access to our integrated data system, visualization and analysis tools, and education and outreach materials. Use our search interface to explore our holdings and find data of interest.
The geothermal information system (GeotIS) provides information and data compilations on deep aquifers in Germany relevant for geothermal exploitation. GeotIS is a public internet based information system and satisfies the demand for a comprehensive, largely scale-independent form of a geothermal atlas which can be continuously updated. GeotIS helps users identify geothermal potentials by visualizing temperature, hydraulic properties and depth levels of relevant stratigraphic units. A sophisticated map interface simplifies the navigation to all areas of interest. An additional component contains a catalogue of all geothermal installations in Germany. The primary objective of this project is to improve the quality of geothermal-plant project-planning and the estimation of the exploration risk for geothermal projects on selectable locations. However, concrete, location-specific analyses still remain the task of local feasibility studies.
Kochi Core Center (KCC) houses one of the 3 Inernationational Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) core repositories, accompanied by images and x-ray CT scanning data viewable by the Virtual Core Library. And it hosts Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) marine core samples and associated analytical data for general scientific or educational uses, after 2 years have passed since collection of core samples.
