Summary
Abstract: Metadata record for data from AAS (ASAC) project 3132.

Public
This research will determine variability in the influx and mineralogy of cosmic dust to the Southern Ocean during the Holocene from peat bog cores. Cosmic dust contains significant quantities of soluble iron, a micronutrient required for photosynthesis. Therefore, variations in the deposition of cosmic dust could significantly affect ...

Quality Values provided in temporal and spatial coverage are approximate only.

These data should also be used with caution - the carbon dating suggests that there may have been some sort of movement in the peat - slumping and overlaying perhaps, or some error in the sampling - unfortunately the scientist responsible for the carbon dating has passed away, so while we can be confident in the actual data, using the cores to reconstruct what has happened over time would be dangerous.
