High resolution oxygen and carbon stable isotope values for the Cucullaea designated WP33 by Rodney Feldmann
Entry ID: eocene_cucullaea_WP33_seymour


Summary
Abstract: These data high resolution oxygen and carbon stable isotope values from one
Cucullaea valve collected on Seymour Island. The locality is within the Eocene
La Meseta Formation. The sample was collected by Rodney M. Feldmann. Isotopic
data were generated in the University of Michigan laboratory of K. C Lohmann
using a digitized microsampler. Sixty-three carbonate samples were taken at
approximately 150 micron spacing in the outer prismatic layer of the shell
designated WP33 by Feldmann. The data appear to span three years of growth. The
data have been used by Karen L. Bice in the evaluation of middle Eocene general
circulation model experiments. This work was supported by the National Science
Foundation through OPP collaborative Award 9909719 to R. Feldmann and K. Bice.
