Summary
Abstract: This data set consists of Globorotalia truncatulinoides (R) Mg/Ca to water
temperature calibrations from Indian Ocean core-top sediments and plankton
tows. G. truncatulinoides (R) is a deep dwelling species that provides a Mg
thermometer for the extremes of the permanent thermocline.

Abstract
Recent work has provided useful Mg/Ca to water temperature calibrations for
shallow-dwelling ... View entire text
