An official repository of the International Ocean Discovery Program
Welcome to the home page of the Rutgers/New Jersey Geological and Water Survey Core Repository. We are an official repository of the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP), hosting Legs 150X and 174AX onshore cores drilled as part of the NJ/Mid-Atlantic Transect, and the New Jersey Geological and Water Survey (NJGWS). Cores from other ODP/IODP repositories are available through ODP. Funding is provided by the National Science Foundation, Ocean Sciences Division, Ocean Drilling Program and Rutgers University.
In addition to ODP/IODP cores, we are the repository for:
Another function of the Repository is to host tours and to promote the educational use of the cores. We are linked to the Rutgers Geology Museum and offer educational tours of both the Museum and our cores facility. We will offer display cores for educational purposes.
Samples are available to all scientific investigators following the general principles outlined by the IODP core policy. Samples from Leg 150X and 174AX are processed first through IODP; other sample requests may be directed to
