Historic Core Data from the Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) Legs 101-129 (Pre-JANUS)
browse graphic The Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) operated the drilling vessel JOIDES Resolution from 1984-2003 for over 100 cruises worldwide. The ODP is funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation and several countries through the Joint Oceanographic Institutions for Deep Earth Sampling (JOIDES). In 1990, the National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) placed most of the core data from legs 101-129 of the ODP onto CD-ROM in cooperation with NSF and JOI/JOIDES. In 2001, this CD-ROM was replaced by a new version with anHTML interface. Data included are all of the digital sediment, and hard-rock data collected through Leg 129, including the following data types: Age profile, carbon-carbonate, corelog, gas chromatography, 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. The ODP CD-ROM set is available online for free download.
