Archive of Geosample Information from the British Ocean Sediment Core Research Facility (BOSCORF)

The British Ocean Sediment Core Research Facility (BOSCORF), National Oceanography Centre, is a contributor to the Index to Marine and Lacustrine Geological Samples (IMLGS) database. As a partner repository, BOSCORF sends information related to their sample collection to NCEI for discoverability via the IMLGS. Some related core photographs are also archived at NCEI. BOSCORF maintains a more complete archive of data and information related to their collection, searchable on their website.
