CLIMAP 120K bp Sediment Data Files - Micropaleontology, Carbonate Percentages, Carbon 14 Age Dates, and Oxygen Isotope Data for 52 Selected Seafloor Cores

The CLIMAP (Climate: Long-range Investigation, Mapping, and Prediction) Project was funded by the National Science Foundation as part of the International Decade of Ocean Exploration (IDOE). Collection and analysis of cores for the 120K bp CLIMAP set was carried out by several institutions; data were compiled by the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University. Data include micropaleontology, carbonate percentages, carbon 14 age dates, sea surface temperature estimates, and oxygen and carbon isotopic data for 52 ocean sediment cores. Data cover the period from 140,000 to 100,000 years before present and are global in extent. The CLIMAP 120k data are available for direct download via NCDC's Web server. The CLIMAP 120k data set was originally submitted to NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) for archive, but was subsequently transferred to NOAA's National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) Paleoclimatology Group for stewardship.
