Title: Archive of Historic Core Data from the Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) Legs 101-129 (Pre-JANUS)
Dataset Publication Date: 1992-12-31
Abstract: 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.
Credit ODP data were compiled by Texas A and M University, Science Operator for the Ocean Drilling Program, with funding from the Joint Oceanographic Institutions, Inc. (JOI). The ODP CDROM was compiled by the NOAA National Geophysical Data Center with support from the U.S. National Science Foundation through JOI.

Data Quality Information
Scope (quality information applies to): Dataset
Data History: 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.
