Arabian Sea Late Quaternary Sediment DataEntry ID: NOAA_NCDC_PALEO_1999-010
Abstract: Isotope, Organic Carbon, Sr/Ca, and foraminifer data from late Quaternary
sediments in the Arabian Sea.
Data precision: For Corg the relative precision was better than 3%. The
elements Ca and Sr were measured with a relative precision better than 3%. For
d15N precision was better than 0.2 per mil. Precision for d18O measurements
was 0.1 per mil.
Because relative abundances of Globorotalia ... truncatulinoides and Globorotalia
crassaformis are low, they were quantified by counting their numbers in 27 (of
45) fields of a rectangular picking tray, to a maximum of 30 specimens.
Sites NIOP (Netherlands Indian Ocean Programme) 453, 455 and 478 are located
on the Pakistan continental slope. Core NIOP 464 was recovered from a
sub-marine high, the Murray Ridge. NIOP 458 is from the deeper part of the
Arabian Basin. Site NIOP 497 is located on the continental slope of Oman.
