Summary
Abstract: This study looks for evidence of the carbonate ion effect (identified in
laboratory experiments) on stable isotopes in foraminifera spanning a natural
carbonate ion gradient at the equatorial Pacific.

The data set comprises size, weight, d18O and d13C data for two species of
planktonic foraminifera (G. ruber and P. obliquiloculata) collected in
sediment traps along a transect spanning the equator along 140??W, from 5??N to
12??S (135??W).
