Abstract. The GIK-Archive of radiographs is a collection of X-ray negative images from sediment cores, prepared and exposed since the early 1960s. During four decades of marine geological work at the University of Kiel, Germany, some thousand hours of sampling, careful preparation and x-raying were spent to produce a unique archive of sediment 10 radiographs from several parts of the world ocean. The archive consists of more than 18 500 exposures on chemical film that were digitized, geo-referenced, supplemented with metadata and archived in the data library PANGAEA®. With this publication, the images become available in Open Access for use by the scientific community at https://doi.pangaea.de/10.1594/PANGAEA.854841.

Short summary
A unique archive of radiographs from ocean floor sediments was produced during 5 decades of marine geological work at the Geological Institute, Kiel University. 18 500 images were digitised, uploaded to the data library PANGAEA, georeferenced and completed with metadata. With this publication the images are made available to the scientific community under a CC-by license in Open Access, citable with a persistent identifier (https://doi.pangaea.de/10.1594/PANGAEA.854841).
