Summary
Abstract: This data set contains calcium carbonate percentage data from marine sediment
cores, plus C14 dates or age models as available, and NCDC's display software.
The analyses were done for the CLIMAP project, and for numerous regional
studies. On average, the cores span 100,000 to 200,000 years, sampled at
intervals averaging 3,000 to 10,000 years. Numerous cores span only the last
