MGDS: Ridge 2000 Data Portal

Access cruise information and data collected during Ridge2000 funded projects.

The Ridge 2000 program is an interdisciplinary research program sponsored by the National Science Foundation that is focused on integrated studies of all aspects of the Earth's oceanic spreading centers - from mantle to microbe. Recognizing that the complex linkages between life and planetary processes at mid-ocean ridges can only be understood through tightly integrated studies that span a broad range of disciplines, the program has promoted coordinated research activities at a few carefully chosen study sites.

The Ridge 2000 Data Portal provides access to cruise information and data collected through the Ridge 2000 program, as well data relevant to the integrated studies of spreading centers.
