1) Oracle paleoceanographic data base consultation from the google earth interface

You must first download and install Google Earth and open the following coverages:

2) Paleoceanographic database (isotopic stratigraphy)

3) Sea-surface conditions in the northern North Atlantic during the last glacial maximum (LGM)

4) Sea-surface conditions in the Northern North Atlantic and Arctic Seas during the Holocene based on dinocyst assemblages

This is a contribution of the Geotop team to the project "Past4Future. Climate change - Learning from the past climate” of the European Union's Seventh Framework programme. The Geotop participation to Past4Future has been supported by the Ministère du Développement économique, de l’innovation et de l’exportation (MDEIE) du Québec. Additional financial support was provided by the Fonds de Recherche du Québec Nature et Technologies (FRQNT) and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.

The data can be downloaded with Google Earth, or in Excel format.

Google Earth: You must first download and install Google Earth, then open the file Sea-surface conditions. Information on the cores and sea-surface reconstructions can be seen by clicking on any of the coring sites illustrated in the map and can be downloaded by clicking the appropriate core from the list of cores.

Excel: click on the link and select the file of your choice.
