Summary
Abstract: Data consists of summer temperature reconstruction based on laminae thickness
in sediments from Donard Lake, Baffin Island, Canada.

ABSTRACT (from the online documentation):
Clastic varved sediments from Donard Lake, in the Cape Dyer region of Baffin
Island, provide a 1250 yr record of decadal-to-centennial scale climate
variability. Donard Lake experiences strong seasonal fluctuations in ... View entire text
