Summary
Abstract: This data set consists of interglacial North Atlantic Temperature and Salinity
Data.

Benthic foraminifer d18O measurements used for the definition of the 5e
plateau. Planktonic foraminifer d18O measurements and summer SST used for
reconstruction of salinities for the last interglacial.
