Summary
Abstract: The SPECMAP paleoclimate archives at NOAA/NCDC World Data Center for
Paleoclimatology consist of four (4) archives:

ARCHIVE 1 contains 101 SPECMAP files, including planktonic counts and
isotope values, age and sea surface temperature models, and SST
estimates. These data were compiled by J. Imbrie and A. Duffy at
Brown University for the SPECMAP project. This archive, prepared as
part of the ... View entire text
