Outcrop Reference Database
The Outcrop Reference Database (ORD) is a searchable online resource of outcrop images and 3D models collected globally. The ORD is divided into 3 key subject areas – Structure and Tectonics, Clastic Sedimentology and Carbonate Sedimentology.
The ORD is now live and can be accessed here - Nautilus 3D – ORD.
A user subscription is not required to search the ORD and view a preview of the content. Access to the full database requires an annual subscription. For further details please contact us.

- Continental Clastic - Meander-belt sandstone body, Lower Cretaceous, Isle of Wight, UK
- Shore Zone/Deltaic Clastic: Tidal estuary sandstone, Lower Cretaceous, Isle of Wight, UK
