Summary
Abstract: This data set is an electronic archive of the proxy carbonate estimates, data
tables and figures from Ortiz, et al. (1999). The much larger reflectance data
sets are archived by the Ocean Drilling Program on the Leg 162 Scientific
Results volume CD-ROM.

The carbonate proxy records:
The contents of each file are: mcd depth, age (in Ma), proxy % carbonate. For
the spliced, Site 980-1 data, the age model is the orbitally tuned model
described in the paper. For Sites 982-984 the age model is based on the
shipboard biostratigraphic and magnetostratigraphic datums published in the ODP
Leg 162 IR volume.


980_1_corpac_age_0-4659.txt:
The contents of the file are the orbitally tuned age model for Site 980-1
(in ka) and proxy % carbonate data preprocessed for spectral analysis.
