eNd values from LGM diamict and Holocene sandy mudsEntry ID: Holocene_LGM_diamict_eNd
Abstract: This data set contains eNd values determined from the < 63 micron fraction of diamict and sandy mud units recovered in sediment cores from around the Antarctic continental margin. Study areas include the Getz Ice Shelf region, the western Antarctic Peninsula, Larsen Ice Shelf region, George V Coast, Pyrdz Bay, and Mac. Robertson Land.

Quality Nd is separated using 2-stage column chemistry. 143Nd/144Nd ratios were measured on an Axiom multi-collector ICP-MS at Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory. Samples containing an Sm interference greater than 0.2 were rejected. The standard JNdi was used to calibrate the instrument. The LDEO "LaJolla" standard was used as an internal standard to assess the instrument drift and consistency.
