Location of the Stratigraphic Correlation lab on the Core Deck.
The stratigraphic correlator uses physical and magnetic properties data to correlate the stratigraphy between adjacent holes and construct a composite depth scale for each site.
Applications Used for Stratigraphic Correlation
Stratigraphic correlation requires the use of multiple applications. These applications can be found at http://ship.iodp.tamu.edu/apps/.
The necessary applications are:
- Correlator Downloader: Used for downloading data that will be used for stratigraphic correlation
- Correlator: The correlation software provided by IODP for stratigraphic correlation. The software is MAC only.
- SCORS Uploader and Manager: Used for uploading affine and splice data to LIMS database
