Archive of Core and Site/Hole Data and Photographs from the Ocean Drilling Program (ODP)

The Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) operated the drilling vessel JOIDES Resolution from 1984-2003 for over 100 cruises worldwide. The ODP was funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation and several countries through the Joint Oceanographic Institutions for Deep Earth Sampling (JOIDES). In 2005, the National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) received a complete extract of prime scientific data from the ODP JANUS relational database for permanent archival at NGDC. Data include all of the digital sediment, and hard-rock data collected on all legs of the program stored in the JANUS database as of December 2005. Data types include: 1) Bulk density estimation by gamma-ray attenuation densiometry (gra), 2) Carbon carbonate (carb), 3) Discrete p-wave velocity (pws1, pws2, pws3), 4) Downhole temperature (temp), 5) Gas chromatography (gas), 6) Inductively coupled plasma - atomic emission spectrometry (icp-aes), 7) Interstitial water (iw), 8) Magnetic susceptibility (msl), 9) Moisture and density (mad), 10) Natural gamma radiation (ngr), 11) Palemagnetism (pmag), 12) P-wave velocity logger (pwl), 13) Reflectance spectrophotometry and colorimetry (rsc), 14) Rock evaluation (re), 15) Shear strength (avs, pen, tor), 16) Thermal conductivity (tcon), 17) X-ray diffraction (xrd), and 18) X-ray fluorescence spectrometry (xrf). In 2007, NGDC received a complete copy of digital core photographs and closeup core photographs as high-resolution TIFF images from IODP for the ODP cores. Additional scanned microphotographs, photographs, and descriptive data were received in 2013. The photos are archived and available on request, but not offered online due to their volume. The data and images described above are distinct from the former data for ODP legs 101-129 published by NGDC on CDROM in both content and format.
