Request data, instrument time, samples, or expert advice

BOSCORF can help you obtain samples, data, instrument time, or provide the expert advice you may need for your research. We have an extensive database of marine sediment core-derived data and metadata. You can request instrument time or samples if existing datasets don’t answer your research questions. We can also assist with analysing sediment cores that aren’t part of the BOSCORF collection. For non-academic clients, we provide a consultancy service.
