This dataset contains 1) inorganic geochemical data obtained using an Itrax XRF core scanner, 2) inorganic geochemical concentrations measured by ICP-AES on a series of 44 subsamples, and 3) grain-size data for 92 size classes measured by laser diffraction particle size analysis. Sediment core JPC14 was obtained from Golfo Elefantes during cruise NPB05-05 in June-July 2005.
Coverage Scope: Regional (Continents, Oceans)
Geographic Location: Golfo Elefantes, Chilean Patagonia
