The Index to Marine & Lacustrine Geological Samples

Objective of the Database:

Dissemination of standardized information on sample collections

to the scientific community

Conceived at the first NSF-supported Curators’ meeting

in 1977 by participants from the following institutions:

FSU, HIG, LDEO, RSMAS, OSU, SIO, URI, USC,

USGS, UW, U Wisc, UT, WHOI, & NGDC

What’s New at NGDC?

NGDC recently reorganized, combining the Natural Hazards group with the Marine Geology and Geophysics Division (MGG).

Ms. Susan McLean is Acting Chief of MGG, and Dr. George Sharman is now a special Assistant to the Office of the Director.

Marine Geology and Geophysics Division

NGDC provides scientific stewardship for data from the ocean floor, from both coastal and open ocean areas, and for data related to natural hazards including tsunamis.

Sea Floor Data Stewardship

Data Scope & Mandate

NGDC serves as the US National Repository for marine geological and geophysical data from the sea floor collected with public funds.

Internationally, NGDC operates the World Data Center for MGG, Boulder, and the International Hydrographic Organization Data Center for Digital Bathymetry.

slide14

Data Types Managed

NGDC manages all types of data from the sea floor, including underway geophysical measurements, derived products and gridded databases, and descriptions and analyses of geologic samples.

  • NOAA/National Ocean Service (NOS)
      • hydrographic survey data & products
  • Trackline geophysical data
      • multibeam & single beam bathymetry
      • gravity & magnetics
      • seismic reflection
  • Marine sediment and rock analyses & descriptions
  • Gridded databases
      • Tsunami inundation DEMs
      • global and coastal gridded elevations
      • total sediment thickness of the oceans
  • Natural Hazards: tsunami, earthquake, volcano data

International Partnerships & Project Participation

  • Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS)
  • Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS)
  • General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans (GEBCO) & associated regional mapping projects sponsored by the IOC and IHO
  • Conducting IOC-sponsored international training in tsunami inundation DEM development
  • Managing the Index to Marine & Lacustrine Geological Samples database
  • Serving as a Bathymetric Data Assembly Center for the World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE)
  • Cooperating with international projects like the Solid Earth Sample Registry (SESAR) and goSEABED

Permanent Archive

We’re in it for the Long Haul,

Preserving data for your great-grandchildren

  • Archived in original and processed forms
  • Documented to FGDC/ISO standards
  • Periodically migrated to new/approved media

Data Rescue & Digitizing

Rescuing data from scientists’ desks and file cabinets.

NOAA Climate Data Modernization Program (CDMP)

  • 31,825 core photographs/negatives scanned
  • 7,234 core X-rays scanned
  • 6,202 core logs and smearslide descriptions key-entered
  • 1,043 coring data sheets scanned
  • 5,069 sea floor photographs scanned
  • plus seismic reflection data from the NGDC archives

(sea floor materials digitized 2005 through August 2007 – many other categories not shown)

Data Access Policy

Making data freely and publicly available.

Marine geological and geophysical data managed by NGDC are in the public domain and freely accessible unless restrictions are requested by the data contributor, usually a moratorium for a specified period of time.

Most data are online, searchable, and free for download. Analog data and custom products are offered at the cost of reproduction.

Access Interfaces and Tools

Making data freely and publicly available.

  • Geospatially-enabled relational databases
  • Interactive browse tools
  • Web Feature Services
  • Web Map Services
  • File download in multiple forms
