Ridge PetDB: Petrological Database of the Ocean Floor
Entry ID: PETDB

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Ridge PetDB is a petrological database of igneous rock samples collected
on the ocean floor. It is a project funded by the National Science
Foundation (NSF), developed and maintained by the Lamont-Doherty Earth
Observatory (LDEO) of Columbia University, and sponsored by the Ridge
Inter-Disciplinary Global Experimetns (RIDGE). Users may query the
database for geochemical data using several constraints including rock
chemistry, tectonic setting, geographic location, bibliography,
petrography, and alteration history. PetDB also has rock trace
elements and isotopes data sets ready for immediate download. PetDB
may be accessed via the following URL: http://www.petdb.org/
