Count Component Title Abstract
1 Core Data and Photographs from the Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) Legs 1-96 The Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) operated the D/V GLOMAR CHALLENGER from 1968-1983, drilling 1,112 holes at 624 sites worldwide. The DSDP was funded by the US National Science Foundation and several foreign countries through the Joint Oceanographic Institutions for Deep Earth Sampling (JOIDES), and was operated by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. The DSDP data management group at SIO compiled a full suite of computerized marine geological and geophysical data files before they were disbanded in 1987, at which time the data files were transferred to NGDC and to the Ocean Drilling Program at Texas A&M University for distribution.In 1989, with support from, and in cooperation with, the Joint Oceanographic Institutions, Inc., U.S. Science Support Program, NGDC produced two compact discs (CDROM) containing all computerized DSDP data. In 2000, all but the logging and geophysical data were re-released as 1 CD-ROM with an HTML interface. Data are available for free online download. In 2007, the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) transferred digital images of all core photographs and closeup core photographs in their collection to NGDC for archive. Due to their volume, these data are not available online, but are archived and available on request. The photo collections consists of 17,635 high-resolution TIFF files, volume 553.34 gigabytes.
