The OSU-MGR is currently in the process of moving to a new state of the art facility funded by OSU and the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Science. This new facility will be unique in the US, housing the current OSU collection and the Antarctic Research Facility collection formerly housed at Florida State University with significant cold room space for decades of expansion, a core lab large enough to run major sampling parties, research programs, and educational endeavors; laboratory space for a wide variety analytical activities including scanning tracks for physical properties and elemental analyses and a wet lab, and classroom and visitor spaces with wifi throughout. During this transition period some facility resources may not be available, but it will be well worth the wait and we greatly appreciate your patience.


Expect a grand opening on January 31st, 2020


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.
