 Welcome to the Site Survey Data Bank (SSDB)

The Site Survey Data Bank (SSDB) is a repository for site survey data submitted in support of International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) proposals and expeditions. SSDB serves different roles for different sets of users:

 Science Community

SSDB is a resource for the general science community to access drilling-related data submitted in the past. Without an SSDB account, you can use the search tool to find data that may be of interest; however, you will not be able to download data without registering for a basic user account.

 IODP Proponents

The Proponent Tool is the main tool for scientists submitting drilling proposals to IODP to upload site survey data and create data packages in support of their proposals. It works in conjunction with the Proposal Database (PDB), the system through which IODP proposal documents are submitted. Please see the Information for Proponents for further links and guidance.

 IODP Reviewers

The Reviewer Tool provides IODP panel members with tools for searching and viewing data associated with proposals they are reviewing. Please see the Information for Reviewers for further links and guidance.
