Entry ID: NOAA_NCDC_PALEO_96-007

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: This data set consists of Isotopic data from site 502. All data are based on
analyses of Cibicidoides wuellerstorfi and have not been corrected to seawater
equilibrium. The "B" suffix in the first column indicates that the sample was
taken from Hole 502B, no suffix indicates that the sample was taken from Hole
502. Specimens were picked from the same sample splits used in the Prell [1982]
study. Assigned ages are based on d18O correlation to the "TP607" time scale
presented by Ruddiman et al. [1989].
