CORING DEVICES Ancillary Description
Quality Information about the rock samples come from field notes, theses, publications
or from data tables filled out by the sample collector. Precise geographical

have place names and field map information.
Access Constraints none
Use Constraints All users who have received samples from the USPRR must:
1) Acknowledge the USPRR in any proposal or publication (including annual
and final NSF reports) using the following wording: "This research used
samples and/or data provided by the United States Polar Rock Repository
