Carried by Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO) of Columbia University, the Petrological Database of the Ocean Floor is a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded research project that includes over 30,000 samples and over 700,000 chemical values from oceanic stations throughout the world. Samples can be searched by location, expedition name, ship name, sample characteristics, reference, or by chemistry. A typical result might include the sample id, description, age, date, tectonic setting, latitude/longitude of site, rock chemistry analysis, and more. Uncluttered and easy to use, this site provides an excellent resource for users wanting to utilize this somewhat nonubiquitous data.
