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

browse graphicODP drill sites 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.
