Summary
Abstract: Gulf of Mexico Deglacial Stable Isotope Data.

The d18O time series of deglaciation in the Gulf of Mexico were acquired from
paired G. ruber white and N. dutertrei planktonic foraminifer shells from
seven piston cores raised from bathyal depths (401 m to 1112 m) and spaced
over a stretch of 315 km on the Louisiana slope (LOUIS).
