Title: Sediment core data from Taylor Valley lakes
Description:
Abstract:
We hold a sediment core data set for a number of cores collected from Taylor Valley lakes (east Antarctica) which includes grain size, carbon isotopes, nitrogen isotopes, sulfur isotopes, radiocarbon ages, thermoluminesence ages, elemental abundances of carbon, nitrogen and sulfur and mineralogy. The lakes cored were Fryxell, Hoare, and Lake Bonney
