Summary
Abstract: This directory contains the data files of the CLIMAP project for 120,000 BP,
including planktonic counts, carbonate percentages, isotopic ratios, and
derived sea surface temperature estimates. Formats and contents for the data
files are as follows:

File LDGO.CO3:
Ocean Code, Core Code, Sample Depth (cm), Lab Code, Method of Analysis,
Sediment Fraction Analyzed, %CO3.

File LDGO.ISO:
Ocean Code, Core Code, Sample Depth (cm), Faunal Analysis, Species Analysis,
delta O18, delta O18 adjusted (to be in equilibrium with Uvigerina spp.),
delta Carbon 13, #/gm of Species Analysis, Lab code.

File LDGO.SST
Ocean Code, Core Code, Sample Depth, Faunal Type, Transfer Function Code, Cold
and Warm SST Estimates, #/gm of Faunal type

File LDGO.BUG:
Line 1: Ocean Code, Core Code, Faunal/Floral Type,# of Species,# of
Samples.
Line 2-?: Species Name Codes
Line Next: Format to Read Sample Depth and Counts
Lines Next: Core ID, Sample depth, 15 counts, Faunal/Floral Type,
Core Type, Record Number for Sample
