Legacy information for 1985-2003The ODP Database Group archives, processes, and edits the program's data collection and distributes it to the scientific community. Included in the ODP data collection are the following:
All ODP data are available online through Janus Web.
Please review the Sample Distribution, Data Distribution, and Publications Policy before requesting data. The use of ODP data requires investigator(s) to fulfill certain obligations.
The data remain proprietary for a period of one year after the end of a cruise and are available only to the participating scientists. After one year the data are released to the public. A Data Migration project is underway in which previous ODP and DSDP data are being migrated to the Janus database. As older data get migrated they become available on the web. The data not available on the web can be obtained from the ODP Data Librarian in a variety of formats, including ftp, e-mail attachments, Mac/PC Floppies, CD-ROM disks, and paper printouts.
