Summary

Since 2002, the Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center’s Samples Repository has been supporting research by providing secure storage for geological, biological, and geochemical samples; maintaining organization and an active inventory of these sample collections; as well as by providing access to these collections for study and reuse. This collections inventory has been compiled, organized, and released online to provide researchers and the general public with a means to discover and request scientific sample material preserved and maintained by the Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center Samples Repository. Updates will be made to the inventory as the collections grow, and version history is available online to document [...]

Purpose

The Samples Repository provides secure storage, processing, and resampling services to USGS scientists and researchers from government and academic institutions investigating the history, nature, and physical properties of geological, biological, and geochemical materials collected from coastal, marine, and near-shore environments. These working scientific collections continue to be a valuable resource for research and scientific investigation through preservation in the Samples Repository and access through the collections inventory.
