Collection

LacCore curates cores and samples from continental coring and drilling expeditions around the world, and also archives metadata and contact information for cores stored at other institutions. A significant number of older cores archived at LacCore are not yet listed here; check back for updates and contact Anders Noren or Kristina Brady for specific information about any of the holdings.
