Next Data Submission Deadline: 1 May 2017 23:59 GMT

The Site Survey Data Bank (SSDB) is the system through which site characterization data supporting the IODP proposals, such as seismic profiles, are submitted. Data files submitted to the deadline immediately following a proposal submission deadline are reviewed together with the proposal by the Science Evaluation Panel. While the SSDB is considered an open resource for those developing drilling proposals, proponents have the option of restricting access to their proprietary data as discussed in the IODP Site Survey Data Confidentiality Policy

After a proposal is accepted, the Science Support Office will set up the proposed sites in the SSDB and contact the lead proponent when the system is ready for data uploads. Data submissions must then be submitted by the deadline. Data submissions must follow the format policies and other regulations specified in the IODP Site Characterization Guidelines (see link below).

Because of an accelerated panel review schedule and the time required for quality control procedures, data files uploaded after the deadline will be reviewed at the discretion of the Science Support Office.
