A trusted data repository offering free public access to a curated collection of marine geophysical data and metadata related to the formation and evolution of the seafloor and sub-seafloor. Explore our data holdings to discover research data from around the world.
The primary data resource for field and processed data from active source marine seismic experiments (multi-channel, single-channel, chirp subbottom, sonobuoy) acquired by the U.S. academic community.
Submersibles provide important high-resolution geophysical data sets as well as bottom samples, photos and video that are important for seafloor characterization and ground-truth. Data have been acquired by the National Deep Submergence Facility (NDSF), the Schmidt Ocean Institute (SOI), and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI).
