|Counts of Foraminifera from Selected North Atlantic Cores, LDEO
||Counts of primarily planktonic foraminifera from Dr. W.F. Ruddiman and staff at the
Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University are included in these files.
Some diatom observations made by Dr. C. Sancetta of LDEO are also included. The data
set consists of approximately 35 files of faunal counts including core id., latitude,
longitude, water depth, and appropriate transfer function. Data also include depth
in core, count of total species, total abundance, case condition for count, core type
code, and faunal code. A taxonomic overview is included, along with complete documentation.
Associated Sea Surface temperature estimates are also included. These data were originally
submitted to NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) for archive and subsequently
transferred to NOAA's National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) Paleoclimatology Group
for stewardship. These data are available for direct download from NCDC.
