Archive of Historic Core Data from the Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) Legs 101-129 (Pre-JANUS)

browse graphicdrilling locations, ODP legs 101-129
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 (JOI). In 1992, the National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) placed most of the core data from legs 101-129 of the ODP onto CDROM in cooperation with NSF and JOI. The data are from an ODP relational database system in place prior to the later, JANUS, system. Not all of the data in this archive were transferred to JANUS, so some data files are unique. In 2001, the CDROM was replaced by a new version with an HTML interface, and also placed online. Data types included are: Age profile, carbon-carbonate, corelog, gas chromatography, gamma ray attenuation porositoy evaluator (GRAPE) special 2-minute counts, hard-rock visual core descriptions, hard-rock thin section descriptions, index properties of sediment, interstitial water chemistry, paleomagnetic susceptibility and intensity, rock evaluator data, sedimentary lithology, site summary, smearslide descriptions, velocity, and x-ray fluorescence data.

Supplemental Information: In 1990, ODP began a cooperative project with the National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) to place all of the sediment, hard-rock and underway geophysical data collected through Leg 129 onto CDROM for distribution. The CDROM and accompanying software for PC compatible and Macintosh platforms were released by NGDC in April of 1992. The 1992 CDROM set was replaced in 2001 with a new version. In 2005, a copy of all ODP prime data from the new ODP Janus database for all legs of the ODP (101-210) was archived at NGDC which almost completely replaces this dataset, although some data types are not represented in the new set.

Use Constraints
  • While every effort has been made to ensure that these data are accurate and reliable within the limits of the current state of the art, NOAA cannot assume liability for any damages caused by any errors or omissions in the data, nor as a result of the failure of the data to function on a particular system. NOAA makes no warranty, expressed or implied, nor does the fact of distribution constitute such a warranty.
Access Constraints
  • Access to this dataset is unrestricted.

Source Datasets
Lineage Statement These data were produced by a combination of shipboard and laboratory analyses and quality control was performed by Texas A and M, Science Operator of the ODP. Data were exported from a system 1032 relational database management system at TAMU as ASCII flat files for transfer to the archive at NGDC.
