Abstract: This data set contains:
- depth (m) - first column contains the "corrected" depths. A slump has
been eliminated in the calculation of these sub-bottom depths;
- depth (m) - second column contains the "un-corrected" depths;
- d18O (%o)
- d13C (%o)
- > 63 µm (%) - obtained by sieving sediments for extraction of foraminifers;
- relative abundance of foraminifer fragments (%) (dissolution index)
