        abstract:  This data compilation includes the results of grain size analyses of core sediment collected by IODP during Expedition 323 in the Bering Sea. One dataset is included for each of the five sites investigated: Sites U1339, U1340, U1341, U1343, and U1344. The cruise occurred in Summer 2009, the analyses were carried out between 2010 and 2012. This compilation is the only sedimentologic resource curently available for the Bering Sea to cover a long period of Earth's recent climate history (about 5Ma to present) from different locations within the basin (Bering Slope and Bowers Ridge).
        purpose:  This compilation primarily benefits paleoceanographers and sedimentologists conducting scientific research into Earth's climate history, provides information for paleoclimate/ocean models, and is relevant towards projections of future climate.
        credit:  If you utilize these data, please acknowledge support from the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP), the National Science Foundation (NSF grant OCE-0962974), and the San Jose State University Foundation.
