Organic matter deposited and buried under the seafloor is one of the major carbon sources for microbial life in the deep subsurfaces of the ocean. In this report we present a compilation of all available total organic carbon (TOC) and total inorganic carbon (TIC) data for the sites drilled during Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) Leg 201. We include the ODP Legs 112 and 138 (Yeats, Hart et al., 1977; Suess, Von Huene, et. al., 1988; Mayer, Pisias, Janecek, et. al. 1992), which were reoccupied during ODP Leg 201. Additional data fromLeg 201 shore-based analyses are also included int he compilation.
