Tephrostratigraphic and tephrochronological dataset of Lake Ohrid covering the last 1.36 Ma. The dataset includes information about position (core, core section depth, depth in composite succession), appearance (color, thickness, and form of tephra layer, glass morphology), age and glass geochemical composition (major, minor and trace elements) of 57 tephra layers identified in the DEEP site sediment succession from Lake Ohrid.
