This dataset includes sample information and mass spectrometer data used to calculate bottom water paleotemperatures for Ocean Drilling Program Site 761B in the Eastern Indian Ocean. We measured several species of benthic foraminifera from the middle MIocene section downcore at this site for their carbonate clumped isotope compositions. The data, spanning ~ 11.5 to 17 Ma, are organized using the clumped isotope data template designed by Dr. Sierra Petersen (UMich). An associated set of final calculated temperatures are also being uploaded to the Pangaea database (this description will be updated to reflect this when the doi is available).
