Nares Strait HLY03-05GC Holocene Sediment Data



This data set contains paleoceanographic data from core HLY03-05GC taken during cruise HLY03 to Nares Strait in 2003, part of the Canadian Archipelago Throughflow Study (CATS).

The sedimentologic (sieve fractions), paleoceanographic (foraminifers, stable isotopes) and mineralogic (quantitative x-ray diffraction (QXRD) mineralogy) data from radiocarbon-dated core HLY03-05GC, Hall Basin, northern Nares Strait are included in this dataset. Sieve data were acquired during sieving for foraminiferal sample preparation. Sieve fractions include >1mm, 1mm-106µm, 106-63µm. Stable C and O analyses were made at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) on C. neoteretis and N. pachyderma sinistral. QXRD data were measured at the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research (INSTAAR) using X-ray diffraction. These data are formatted as an Excel document.

Core HLY03-05 GC: 81°37.286'N, 63°15.467'W, 372cm long, 797m water depth.
