Geochemical data from the Late Cretaceous of Seymour Island, Antarctic PeninsulaEntry ID: Geochemical_data_Seymour_Island_Antarctic_Peninsula
Abstract: Geochemical Data from latest Cretaceous and Early Eocene deposits on Seymour Island Antarctic Peninsula. 87Sr/86Sr analysis of bone taken from the skeleton of the Polarornis gregorii, 87Sr/86Sr values are present from six bone samples. Additionally, Rare Earth Elements (REE) analysis of sediment samples from Seymour Island, where samples associated with the skeleton of the Polarornis gregorii, plus samples from La Meseta Fm., unit Telm2; and from the Lopez de Bertodano Fm., unit Klb9 are provided. A REE data table and line chart of values are presented.
