Elemental carbon and nitrogen geochemistry of a tropical peatland profile from the summit of Mount Kaala, Oahu, Hawaii
This dataset provides elemental carbon and nitrogen concentrations measured from a two-meter sedimentary organic (peat) deposit from the cloudforest peatland at the summit of Kaala on the Island of Oahu in the Hawaiian Islands. The base of the profile is ~45ka and accumulation spans the Last Glacial period in the central Pacific. Bulk samples were homogenized and sieved to <250 microns and analyzed by elemental analysis.
