Abstract:
File contains Ba/Ca data (in mmol/mol) presented by Lea et al. (1989). Samples were measured at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology by D. Lea. Ba determinations were performed on a VG PlasmaQuad inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer, and Ca was determined by flame atomic absorption. Measurement precision is 1% for Ba/Ca. Ages for samples were assigned on the basis of well-defined density banding. Annual growth averaged 11mm/yr.
