Abstract Operated by the NOC, BOSCORF is the UK national deep sea core repository, set up by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) to store marine sediment cores collected by NERC ships and NERC-funded researchers. Deep sea sediment cores are an expensive and unique resource of immense scientific value. BOSCORF provides specialised facilities for the long-term storage and curation of cores with the aim of making the material available to scientists, and to promote secondary usage amongst the scientific community. BOSCORF provides specialist non-destructive logging facilities and cores entering the repository are routinely logged. BOSCORF maintains databases of its collections, and these can be searched online through the EU-SEASED European online core catalogue.
