Archive of information about geological samples available for research from the Ohio State University Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center (BPCRC) Polar Rock Repository

The Polar Rock Repository (PRR) operated by the Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center (BPCRC) at the Ohio State University 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 and available for further research. Only underwater samples (dredges, trawls, and grabs) curated by the Polar Rock Repository are described in the IMLGS. As of December 2015, there are 2,776 PRR samples in the IMLGS. The originating institution is the definitive source of information related to their sample collection. Each PRR entry in the IMLGS links back to a definitive web page for that sample at the PRR.
