General Use

DateView geochronology database

International geochronology and isotope database. More information on this database and on submitting data are available here. An overview of the design and operation of the database is also available, as is a summary of the system's capabilities in pdf format. Further contributions to the contents of this database are welcome. Non-commercial use of this database is free.

As of November 2013 DateView stores more than 106,000 summary records and also has numerous individual detrital zircon U-Pb and Lu-Hf results
.

Some Flash animations have been created for various parts of the globe to illustrate the geochronological record.

StratDB lithostratigraphy, structural domain and ore deposit database

Database containing information on stratigraphic units from various countries and metamorphism/deformation in various structural domains. The design is based on that used for the IGCP509 project, but extends the time-span to cover all of Earth history. Links are provided between this database and the DateView geochronology database to show ages available for various units. More information is available on the use of this database and on submitting data. Users may download summary information from the database as Excel spreadsheets. Some of these spreadsheets are specifically designed for semi-automatic importing into ARCGIS for constructing time-space correlation charts. Further details of this process are also available. Contributions to the contents of this database are welcome. Non-commercial use of this database is free.

DepIso isotope database for ore deposits

Database containing isotope data (mostly Pb-Pb data) for deposits. Basic deposit information is from the StratDB database. The database currently contains analyses for more than 15,000 samples from several thousand deposits around the world. This database is still under development and access to the Pb-Pb data is by invitation or for collaborators willing to contribute new data.

ResinDB database for ion exchange resin distribution coefficients

Database containing ion exchange distribution coefficients of relevance to isotope geochemical separations. Contributions to the contents of this database are welcome. Non-commercial use of this database is free.

LIP large igneous province database

Database containing information on large igneous provinces from around the world. This database is a component of the StratDB database. Access to most of the >5,000 records in the database is currently limited to participants in the MantlePlumes project. The information in the database was compiled and structured by Dr Richard Ernst and Dr Bruce Eglington. Users may download summary information from the database as Excel spreadsheets. Some of these spreadsheets are specifically designed for semi-automatic importing into ARCGIS for constructing time-space correlation charts. Non-commercial use of this database is free.

Test connection using direct port calling

This provides a simple test for users to check whether they can access programs on this page. It does not utilise connections to any database.

Test connection using Octagate Switch redirect
