The ODP/DSDP data collection now includes paleontology, geophysics, geochemistry, paleo-magnetics, sedimentology, and physical properties of seafloor cores and samples gathered from more than one thousand sites. ODP has begun a complex, multiyear database upgrade project (known as JANUS) to reorganize the amalgam of electronic and paper formats into an Oracle database. JANUS, to be installed on the drill ship in January, 1997, facilitates collection, retrieval and correlation through simplified database interaction. instrumental and observational data are available instantly throughout the ship and via the web after a postcruise moratorium. Reports are standardized and depth corrections among multi-hole datasets are tracked automatically, easing stratigraphic correlation among cores and well logs. The pilot web interface includes a geographic browser and tools to query by leg, site, hole and data type or to cross-reference data types. Paleo and physical properties data are on the pilot web site today. For other data: email to DATABASEODP.TAMU.EDU. JANUS project web page: Pilot web interface:
