The OSU-MGR is currently in the process of moving to a new facility. This new facility is a significant upgrade and will host the current OSU collection and former FSU Antarctica Research Facility collection with significant room for future expansion. During this transition period some facility resources may not be available. We appreciate your patience.

Welcome to the OSU-MGR:

The Marine Geology Repository (MGR) at Oregon State University (OSU) is a NSF supported curation facility for marine rock and sediment samples. Containing over 41,000 cubic feet of refrigerated space and 1,100 cft of -25ÂșC cold storage it is well equipped for preservation and distribution of marine geological samples for scientific research and education.


Our mission is to facilitate research, education, and the advancement of scientific knowledge through access and use of our diverse collection of rock, lake, and marine sediment samples.
