Abstract: This data set consists of Ras Umm Sidd bimonthly coral oxygen isotope
data (coral core RUS-95).

A 245-year coral oxygen isotope record from the northern Red Sea (Ras
Umm Sidd/Egypt, ~28 deg. N) in bimonthly resolution is presented. The
mean annual coral d18O signal apparently reflects varying proportions
of both sea surface temperature and ... View entire text
