Abstract: Mid-Cretaceous (Barremian to Albian) carbon cycle data from
hemipelagic sediments deposited along the continental margin of
northeastern Mexico. Data consist of dC13 analyses of organic matter
and Corg and CaCO3 analyses by coulometry. Samples were collected
from 4 sections in the Sierra Madre Oriental (~25-25.2N, ~100-100.7W)
along a transect from pelagic (La Boca Canyon) to hemipelagic (Canyon
Los Chorros)
