Collections Inventory for the U.S. Geological Survey Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center Samples Repository

October 27, 2021

The collections inventory database for the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center (WHCMSC) Samples Repository is published as a USGS data release (Buczkowski and others, 2017), and is available to search online through the Samples Repositorys inventory search interface. Sample collections in the Repository can be searched and selected through a map interface, or by entering search criteria related to the platform the samples were collected from, the scientist responsible for collection, the field activity, sample type, device used to collect the sample, or by the date the samples were collected. Selected entries can be viewed on individual search results pages linked from the results menu. These results can also be downloaded from the database as comma separated value (CSV) file(s) and will be accompanied by metadata.
