IODP Bremen Core Repository

Description The Bremen Core Repository - BCR, for Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP), Ocean Drilling Program (ODP), and Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) cores from the Atlantic Ocean, Mediterranean and Black Seas and Arctic Ocean is operated at University of Bremen within the framework of the German participation in IODP. It is one of three IODP repositories (beside Gulf Coast Repository (GCR) in College Station, TX, and Kochi Core Center (KCC), Japan). BCR presently contains more than 151km of deep-sea cores from 86 expeditions in around 260,000 boxes, which are sampled and analysed by national and international working groups. Around 200 scientists visit the repository annually, sometimes working on the cores in week-long sampling meetings. As many as 50,000 samples per year are taken by guests and by the repository staff. The repository is an important contact point for scientists from all over the world (about 3,000 visitors so far) and therefore significantly contributes to the exchange and transfer of marine science knowledge in Bremen, leading to international co-operations and scientific interactions.
