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. 

Correlator Software

Applications Used for Stratigraphic Correlation

Stratigraphic correlation requires the use of multiple applications.  These applications can be found at

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
