Site Survey Data Bank
The Site Survey Data Bank (SSDB) is a long-term repository for
data submitted in support of International Ocean Discovery Program
(IODP) proposals and expeditions. Using tools available in the
SSDB, proponents submit digital files (data, images, or
documents) for evaluation by reviewers, who make recommendations
to IODP through the scientific advisory panels. Data submission
deadlines are posted on the SSDB home page, and are typically one
month after proposal deadlines. Many of the digital files in the
SSDB are available for public access, although any proprietary
hold requirements specified by proponents are strictly
enforced. As proposals evolve into funded expeditions, the
SSDB also provides expedition packages of files to support
drilling operations and scientific analysis. For further
information on IODP science and the proposal process, please
visit the IODP website.
Who We Are
SSDB is run by the IODP Science Support Office at Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
