Count Component Title Abstract
1 CLIMAP 18K bp Sediment Data Files - Micropaleontology, Stratigraphy and Geochemistry From Sea Floor Cores The CLIMAP (Climate: Long-range Investigation, Mapping, andPrediction) Project was funded by the National Science Foundation aspart of the International Decade of Ocean Exploration (IDOE) Program. The CLIMAP 18k bp sediment data files were compiled by Oregon State University, and include the work of several major institutions. The files contain micropaleontology in the form of faunal counts of diatoms, planktonic foraminifera, coccoliths, and radiolaria, as well as stratigraphy (percent fine, coarse, total carbonate, oxygen 18 and carbon 13), and geochemistry (percent opal, quartz, and organic carbon), and inferred sea surface temperatures for 635 ocean sediment cores. Data are primarily from the period 18,000 years bp to the present. Time data give upper and lower samples depths, technique, and C14 dates (for total sample, coarse fraction, and fine fraction). Age estimates are given in thousands of years with upper and lower age error estimates. In addition, each data records contains station information. The CLIMAP 18k data set is available for direct download as a Paleoclimatology data set from the NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) and collocated World Data Center for Paleoclimatrology.

          1 1980-08-31T00:00:00 Received the latest update of the CLIMAP 18K sediment data from originator August of 1980, via mail on a nine track magnetic table in EBCDIC form, one file, 80 character records blocked to 5120 characters per block. There were 37,063 records (1,185 samples), but all but 822 latitudes and longitudes on this version were -999 (null), fewer than were filled in on the last version. The originator, Duncan, noted that revisions/corrections would be coming, but never received. Updates were probably contributed directly to NOAA Paleoclimatology.
          1 2015-04-22T00:00:00 NOAA created the National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) by merging NOAA's National Climatic Data Center (NCDC), National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC), and National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC), including the National Coastal Data Development Center (NCDDC), per the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015, Public Law 113-235. NCEI launched publicly on April 22, 2015.
