Summary
Abstract: Arabian Sea Denitrification Data from Core ODP 722B d15N
and
High-resolution nitrogen isotope ratio, nitrogen content and chlorin abundance
data from sediment cores RC27-14 and RC27-23, located on the Oman margin in
the Arabian Sea. Substantial millennial-scale variability in Arabian Sea
denitrification and productivity is indicated during the last glacial period.

Core Locations:
RC27-14: 18° 15.2' N, 57° 39.3' E, 596 m water depth
RC27-23: 17° 59.6' N, 57° 35.4' E, 820 m water depth
