BOSCORF is the UK’s national deep-sea sediment core research facility and provides a unique and strategic service to the environmental science community. It provides an advanced state-of-the-art non-destructive core logging and analysis capability that is unique in the UK. BOSCORF also provides specialised long-term sediment core storage facilities, so that sediment cores collected by NERC ships, and NERC- funded researchers, can be kept under optimum conditions to ensure long-term preservation, and availability to the scientific community. BOSCORF promotes multiple usage of the sediment core material in its care ensuring cost-effective exploitation of an important national scientific resource. It is also responsible for long-term curation of core-based data relating to its holdings and from sediment core-based national marine programmes in compliance with NERC data management policy.
