The reconstruction of the late Holocene palaeoproductivity changes in the Skagerrak and the Norwegian Trench provides data of multiple proxies: benthic foraminifera, planktonic foraminifera, diatoms and total organic carbon (TOC) analyzed in 3 sediment cores: EMB046/6-5GC, EMB046/10-4GC and EMB046/20-3GC.
The data are given as nine files: 3 separate files (foraminifera, diatom and TOC) for each of the cores. Benthic foraminiferal data are presented as relative abundances (%) of Brizallina skagerrakensis and absolute abundances of palaeoproductivity species, low oxygen species, agglutinated taxa and total benthic foraminifera. Palaeoproductivity species include: Alabaminella weddelensis, Brizalina skagerrakensis, Bulimina marginata, Epistominella exigua, Epistominella vitrea, Nonionella iridea, Uvigerina mediterrannea and Uvigerina peregrina. Low oxygen species are grouped by summing together species Adercotryma glomerata, Ammodiscus spp., Bolivina spp., Buccella frigida, Globobulimina auriculata, Globobulimina turgida, Planulina ariminensis, Textularia earlandi, Spiroplectammina biformis and Stainforthia fusiformis.
Planktonic foraminifera and diatoms are given in absolute abundances per g sediment, whilst TOC data are in %.
