Archive of Geosample Data and Information from the Oregon State University (OSU) College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences (CEOAS) Marine Geology Repository (MGR)
browse graphic The Oregon State University Marine Geology Repository (OSU-MGR) 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. The partner repository sends related data, documents, and imagery to NCEI for long-term archive, but the originating institution is the definitive source of information related to their sample collection. The OSU-MGR is located in the College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences (CEOAS). It is a National Science Foundation (NSF) supported curation facility for marine rock and sediment samples. The facility contains over 41,000 cubic feet of refrigerated space and 1,100 cubic feet of -25 degrees C cold storage and is well equipped for preservation and distribution of marine geological samples for scientific research and education.
