Identification Information
Title: Counts of Foraminifera from Selected North Atlantic Cores, LDEO
Dataset Publication Date: 1991-12-31
Abstract: 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 are available for direct ftp download from NGDC's Web server.
