Summary
Abstract: This data set consists of several different data sets from four marine cores in
the northwest Pacific Ocean. The cores, their water depths, and latitude and
longitude are as follows:

latitude longitude water depth
RC14-99 36o58'N 147o56'E 5652 meters
RC14-105 39o41'N 157o33'E 5630 meters
V20-120 47o24'N 167o45'E 6216 meters
V28-304 28o32'N 134o08'E 824 meters

The data consists of isotopic measurements of benthic foraminifera, estimates
of winter (February) and summer (August) sea-surface temperatures, eight major
pollen taxa, and radiolarian species counts.
