Abstract:
This data set consists of Equatorial east Atlantic planktic foraminifera Mg/Ca data, used by Nuernberg et al for SST reconstructions. Core 1105 Latitude: 1°39.9´S Longitude: 12°25.7´W Bathymetry: 3225 m Core 1112 Latitude: 5°46.2´S Longitude: 10°44.7´W Bathymetry: 3122 m Variable names: Depth; Age; Mg/Ca; SST Variable unit: (cm); (kyr); (mmol/mol); (°C) Data precision: relative standard deviation is < 1% for Mg and Ca, the relative error in terms of SST is + 0.4°C
