Dataset: Quantifying the isotopic composition of oxygen and carbon with increasing depth in core GC14, located in the Capricorn Channel


A gravity core (GC14) was collected from a depth of 2004 mbsl within the Capricorn Channel, southern Great Barrier Reef (GBR). The data from stable isotopes of Globigerinoides ruber were analysed to allow a preliminary understanding of the hemipelagic sedimentary environment over the last glacial / interglacial cycle. The results suggest that the core reaches the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) at ~80cm depth corresponding to heavier 18-O values and other measured parameters.
