Santa Barbara Basin Sediment Trap G. bulloides del18O and del13C Data The file sbbtrap-O18C13bulloides.xls contains stable isotope data (oxygen and carbon) generated on specimens of G. bulloides from a sediment trap in the Santa Barbara Basin. The carbon and oxygen data are relative to PDB. The date variable represents the middle of the collection period of the sample. The data was generated using an autocarbonate carousel connected to a Micromass Optima Stable Isotope Mass Spectrometer. Trap depth was approximately 450 meters.
