Title: 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 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.
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 CD-ROM was compiled by the NOAA National Geophysical Data Center with support from the US National Science Foundation through JOI.
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.
