Summary
Abstract: This data set consists of a comparison of published astronomically calibrated
timescales. The ASCII file lourens1996.dat contains composite depth,age,
oxygen isotope data from G. ruber-obliquus, sea surface temperature and
relative abundances of the planktonic foraminifers throughout the Pliocene to
early Pleistocene of the Mediterranean.
