Title: Major and trace element geochemistry from LGM diamict and Holocene sandy mud
Description:
Abstract:
This data set contains major element geochemistry and trace element geochemistry of the < 63 micron fraction of diamict and sandy mud units recovered in sediment cores from around the Antarctic continental margin. Study areas include the Getz Ice Shelf region, the western Antarctic Peninsula, Larsen Ice Shelf region, George V Coast, Pyrdz Bay, and Mac. Robertson Land. Measurements were done via ICP-OES at Montclair State University.
