This dataset presents results from compound-specific radiocarbon analyses (14C) of long-chain fatty acids from sediment core samples from cruise SO93 on R/V Sonne in the Bay of Bengal. These data are used as records of post-glacial changes in precipitation and the potential climate feedbacks through organic-carbon burial in the Bengal Fan.
