IODP data and samples are typically protected by a 1-year postcruise moratorium, during which time data and samples from a particular expedition are available only to that expedition’s science party and approved shore-based participants. Longer moratorium periods will be in effect for expeditions where sampling takes place postcruise at a shore-based repository.
Expedition photos are the property of the International Ocean Discovery Program and are in the public domain. They may be used for free provided the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP), JOIDES Resolution Science Operator (JRSO), and photographer (when known) are acknowledged in the caption or credits accompanying each photo.
Expedition maps are provided for free use by researchers, policy makers, the media, and the public.
