Eocene to Oligocene-aged benthic foraminifer isotope and sediment-derived neodymium isotopes from Ocean Drilling Program Sites 689 and 690 (Maud Rise, Southern Ocean) (NERC NE/L004607/1)

Dataset description

This dataset includes the (stable) oxygen and carbon isotopic composition of benthic foraminifer tests (n= 686) and the (radiogenic) isotopic composition of the terrigenous fraction of marine sediments (n= 75), all sampled from Eocene to Oligocene-aged sediments recovered at Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) Site 689 and 690 (Maud Rise, Southern Ocean)

Constraints

Data from this NERC-funded research is currently under preparation for publication in peer-review journals.
