Summary
Abstract: Cariaco Basin G. bulloides Abundance Data
Latitude: 10°45.46' N
Longitude: 64°41.68' W
Bathymetry: 395 m
Variable names: Depth in core, Age, G. bulloides abundance
Variable units: cm, calendar year (AD), no. per gram of sediment

The file contains sample depth, age model, and abundance (units of no. of
individuals per gram of sediment) for the planktic foraminifer Globigerina
bulloides. Samples were taken at consecutive 1 mm intervals over the length
of box core PL07-71 BC (56.4 cm) collected from the Cariaco Basin, Venezuela.
The age model is based on a combination of varve counts, 210Pb, and
accelerator mass spectrometry 14C dates. See original Science reference or
contact authors for additional information.
