To facilitate accurate tracing of the extent of aeolian and oceanic transport of NZ dust, this dataset presents major/trace element and Sr-Nd-Pb isotope ratios on 20 sediments from the major present-day dust and sediment producing regions of the South Island. Samples were size-separated using Stokes settling to obtain the <5 ┬Ám fraction, then digested using HF-HNO3.
