Data stewardship scholarship project

OC3 was awarded a Data Stewardship Scholarship in May 2021.

Data steward

Juan Muglia

Goal

To establish a novel global database of stable isotope δ13C and δ18O measurements on benthic foraminifera shells from ocean sediment cores with consistent, high-resolution age models, that will allow for easy updates and facilitate uncertainty quantification. In creating this database, a thorough data-quality check will be conducted and metadata will be included. Finally, tools will be created to easily extract information from the database.

Repository

Institutional repository of Conicet, Argentina (csv files)
PANGAEA (full dataset)
NOAA NCEI (full dataset)
LinkedEarth (full dataset)
PaleoDataView (full dataset, atlas-like version)

Final products

Several manuscripts will be published describing the database and based on analyses using the database. A github page will be produced containing python scripts to use the database efficiently. The database will be made available in the form of a PaleoDataView atlas.
