Abstract: Data base for reconstruction of atmospheric CO2 in the Milankovitch Chron.

There are seven tables, containing the following information:
1. Milankovitch template Mila1000, for dating of deep-sea d18O records
2. Oxygen isotope records from Ontong Java Plateau
3. Oxygen isotope record stack for Ontong Java Plateau
(G. sacculifer, late Quaternary).
4. Sea level model or the Brunhes Chron.
5. Isotope stratigraphy of ODP806B.
6. Carbon isotope stratigraphy for Ontong Java Plateau
7. Reconstructed values for atmospheric CO2 using multiple regression derived
from comparing deep-sea data with the Vostok CO2 record published in Barnola et
al. (1987).
