Polar Rock Repository Database
The Polar Rock Repository is a national facility constructed adjacent to Scott Hall, home of the Byrd Polar Research Center, The Ohio State University. It is supported by the National Science Foundation's Office of Polar Programs. The repository houses rock samples from Antarctica, the southern oceans, South America and small collections from Africa and Australia. The rock collection and database includes field notes, photos, maps, cores, powder and mineral residues and thin sections. Rock samples may be used for research by university scientists. Samples may also be borrowed for educational or museum use in the United States. Visitors are welcome at the PRR by appointment.
