Sediment core data from Taylor Valley lakes
Entry ID: doran_0126270


Summary
Abstract: We hold a sediment core data set for a number of cores collected from Taylor
Valley lakes (east Antarctica) which includes grain size, carbon isotopes,
nitrogen isotopes, sulfur isotopes, radiocarbon ages, thermoluminesence ages,
elemental abundances of carbon, nitrogen and sulfur and mineralogy. The lakes
cored were Fryxell, Hoare, and Lake Bonney
