Palmyra Island Monthly Oxygen Isotope Data (delta 18O) for 1886-1998
Entry ID: G2079

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Palmyra Island Monthly Coral Oxygen Isotope Data. 112-yr, monthly-resolved
coral record from Palmyra Island (5A?52'N, 162A?8'W). The coral was drilled
in ~30' of water from the reef flat extending off the west side of the island.
The data are in two columns: date (in year) and oxygen isotopic value (per
mill). The data are monthly samples of the raw dataset and have not been
deseasoned or detrended. We calculate the analytical precision at <0.05 per
mill, based on over 500 measurements of an internal aragonitic laboratory
standard measured while running the Palmyra coral. On-line data are available
free of charge, other forms are available for the cost of reproduction.
