Summary
Abstract: This data set consists of the following files:
1. PRBcensus.xls
----------------
This self-explanatory excel (v97, Windows) file contains census counts of 26
taxa of planktonic foraminifera in the two coretop samples from box cores
PRB-07 and PRB-12 as well as counts for the top 24 cm of box core PRB-12.
These two cores were added to the 738 coretop database of Pflaumann et al
[1996]. Details ... View entire text
