The Index to Marine and Lacustrine Geological Samples is a collaboration between twenty institutions and agencies that operate geological sample repositories. The purpose of the database is to help researchers locate sea floor and lakebed cores, grabs, dredges, and drill samples in their collections.
Located on the Duluth campus of the University of Minnesota, the Large Lakes Observatory (LLO) is the only institute in the country dedicated to the study of large lakes world wide. Research focuses on the global implications of investigations in the areas of aquatic chemistry, circulation dynamics, geochemistry, acoustic remote sensing, plankton dynamics, sedimentology and paleoclimatology.
Research at the SCWRS focuses on scientifically and environmentally important questions on regional, national, and global scales. The research program emphasizes aquatic-based studies involving land-water interaction, biogeochemistry, hydrology, restoration ecology, and aquatic biology.
The IRM was established to provide free-of-charge access to state-of-the-art facilities and technical expertise, and to encourage visiting researchers in their studies of important new topics in rock magnetism and related interdisciplinary fields.
NCED’s purpose is to catalyze development of an integrated, predictive science of the processes shaping the surface of the Earth, in order to transform management of ecosystems, resources, and land use.
Drilling, Observation and Sampling of the Earth’s Continental Crust, Inc. is a nonprofit corporation whose mission is to provide leadership and technical support in subsurface sampling and monitoring technology for addressing topics of scientific and societal importance.
The International Continental Scientific Drilling Program is a multinational program to further and fund Geosciences in the field of Continental Scientific Drilling.
The purpose of the Limnogeology Division is to promote: the research on both ancient and modern lakes around the world; the collaboration of scientists from all disciplines on lake research; the presentation and publication of lake research and students in performing research or wishing a career in lake studies
Lake basins are dynamic systems with both response and records of environmental interactions: This is the guiding theme of the International Association of Limnogeology.
