These databases contain geological and geophysical investigations of
the cores recovered from almost every ocean of the world. The data
were collected on oceanographic cruises of the Deep Sea Drilling
Program and the Ocean Drilling Program.
Janus Web provides access to ODP's Oracle relational database Janus. The
database contains 450 tables of ODP's marine ... geoscience data that are collected
onboard the drillship JOIDES Resolution. The database includes paleontological,
lithostratigraphic, chemical, physical, sedimentological, and geophysical data
for ocean sediments and hard rocks.
Janus has been used to collect data since Leg 171A (January 1997). During the
first postcruise (moratorium) year, access to proprietary ODP data is only
given to scientists who participated on the cruise. Proprietary data are
released to the public one year after the end of each cruise. Non-proprietary
data such as ODP & DSDP site information are available to everyone. Data
collected prior to Leg 171A are being added to Janus as time permits.
Some of the Janus data is available in the CHRONOS system
