Abstract: This data set consists of Lake Peten-Itza Ostracod and Gastropod Stable
Isotopic Data.

Stable isotopic data (d18O and d13C) with radiocarbon ages, from ostracod and
gastropod samples taken in Lake Peten-Itza, Guatemala (1993 core). These
data were used to reconstruct precipitation/evaporation ratios as a
paleo-drought indicator.

Data files contain both smoothed and unsmoothed data in text ... View entire text
