Geochemistry Databases in the Best of the Web Directory

Geochemistry Databases

  • Alaska Geochemical Database

    Geochemical analyses of rock, sediment, soil, mineral, and heavy mineral concentrate samples in Alaska analyzed from 1962 through 2009.


    Contains access to Earth Science reference data and models.

  • Energy Resources Program Geochemistry Data Base

    Contains the analytical data for over 200,000 samples worldwide. The Energy Geochemistry Data Base (EGDB) contains chemical analysis data for crude oil, natural gas, coal, water, and rock samples analyzed by the USGS Energy Resources Team's Geochemistry Laboratory, or by contracted-service laboratories.

  • Geochemical Earth Reference Model (GERM)

    This database contains summary data on the geochemistry and chemical characterization of the Earth, its major reservoirs, and the fluxes between them.

  • GEOROC Geochemical Database

    The database GEOROC (Geochemistry of Rocks of the Oceans and Continents) is maintained by the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry in Mainz. The database is a comprehensive collection of published analyses of volcanic rocks and mantle xenoliths. It contains major and trace element concentrations, radiogenic and nonradiogenic isotope ratios as well as analytical ages for whole rocks, glasses, minerals and inclusions.

  • IEDA: EarthChem

    Gives access to all data systems and services for geochemistry that are operated by the Integrated Earth Data Applications (IEDA) Research Group, including the Geochemical Resource Library, PetDB, NAVDAT, and SedDB.

  • Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory

    The Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory seeks fundamental knowledge about the origin, evolution and future of the natural world. Its scientists study the planet from its deepest interior to the outer reaches of its atmosphere, on every continent and in every ocean, providing a rational basis for the difficult choices facing humanity.

  • National Geochemical Database

    Maintains and enhances the National Geochemical Database (NGDB) which consists of the original RASS and PLUTO data from the USGS labs, which are now stored in a common format under the ORACLE relational database management system.

  • USGS National Geochemical Survey Database

    A national-scale geochemical analysis of stream sediments and soils in the US, from existing data, reanalysis of existing samples, and new samplings. The goal for sample density is one per 289 square km.
