2. Core Curation

This group provides curation services for core samples collected by IODP and JAMSTEC reserach cruises.

a. IODP Core Curation
For details about the IODP Core Curation, click here.

b. JAMSTEC Core Curation
JAMSTEC core curators provide curation services, such as storage and distribution of core samples obtained by JAMSTEC research cruises, and various outreach services related to core sample research and education.

Core samples are highly valued resources for scientific and educational activities. These samples should be accessible to wider scientific community as an asset shared by mankind. JAMSTEC provides the core samples and associated analytical data for general scientific or educational uses after maximum two-year moratorium period (i.e., 2 years after collection of cores/data on board ship).

JAMSTEC core samples are curated by JAMSTEC core curators at KOCHI/JAMSTEC (Kochi Core Center). For accessing the core samples, please visit the JAMSTEC Core Sample Curation website; http://www.jamstec.go.jp/kochi/jc_curation/e/.
