|SCANS files are digital versions of
handwritten notes compiled by scientists who participated
on ODP Leg 169. These files were assembled under time
constraints and do not incorporate final interpretations
or conclusions of the Shipboard Scientific Party. These
files represent the equivalent of field notes and should
not be considered as anything else than a guide to
sampling the cores.
STRSCANS files are descriptions of the structural features of cores on a section-by-section basis. Not all cores are represented. These notes are presented in a PDF format. Files are named according to ODP numbering convention, such that file 36A3H2.PDF is the description for Section 169-1036A-3H-1.PDF (the letter C before the .PDF extension indicates the core catcher).
VCDSCANS files are the notes used to prepare the visual core descriptions presented in the Leg 169 Initial Reports volume. These section-by-section notes are presented in a PDF format. These files are named according to ODP numbering convention, such that file 035A12X4.PDF is the description for Section 169-1035A-12X-4 (the letter C before the .PDF extension indicates the core catcher).
