Dataset: Age vs. Depth of core MD032607 (off South Australia). Age has been calculated through modelling based on oxygen isotope records from Globigerina bulloides


The age with depth of core MD032607 is calculated through 18O values, which are then correlated with the SPECMAP age-model. Based upon these measurements the age at the deepest part of the core (3270cm) is ~176,590yrs BP. The age vs. depth profile for this core indicates a major increase in the sedimentation rate during the initial phase of MIS 6, when the sedimentation rate is ~41cm/1000yrs. The average sedimentation rate over the length of the core is 18.7cm/1000yrs.
