Lamont-Doherty has become an official branch of the Antarctic Seismic Data Library System (SDLS), which is archiving all marine multi-channel seismic data acquired in the Antarctic treaty area (South of 60°S) as required by the Antarctic treaty. SDLS libraries maintain DVD copies of and provide access to the seismic data including those that are not yet publically available from the main SDLS web portal (http://sdls.ogs.trieste.it/). The libraries also enhance collaboration between originators of data and potential users. In addition to the library function we have started to integrate older seismic data into GeoMapApp.
