Preservation of Geoscience Data Committee

The mission of the AAPG Committee on Preservation of Geoscience Data is to promote collection, preservation, and utilization of samples and cores as well as those data directly attributable to this rock material to include core analysis, sample descriptions, and stratigraphic assignment. Specifically inclusive, would be photographs, petrographic data and descriptions, photomicrographs, porosity, permeability and other rock data all of which could be digitized and stored in compact storage facilities. A priority is placed on identifying established repositories and constructing automated linkages between potential users and the data listings of these archives. The Committee will encourage and support both the AAPG membership and any other individual or appropriate organization in accomplishing this mission.
