Abstract:
The high-time resolution (∼70 years in average) multi-proxy analysis conducted on the mid-shelf core CBT-CS11 (47°46.429′N; 4°25.308′W; 73 m depth; 3.96 m long; NW France, S Brittany) revealed the complexity of the palaeohydrological and palaeoclimatic signals recorded over the last 7 kyrs in the recently published paper: “Oceanic versus continental influences over the last 7 kyrs from a midshelf record in the northern Bay of Biscay (NE Atlantic)” [1]. This study presents the whole CBT-CS11 dataset discussed in [1] including sedimentological (XRF and grain-size (total from [1] and CaCO3-free from [2]) analyses), geochemical (oxygen and carbon stable isotopes on two different benthic foraminiferal species: Ammonia falsobeccarii from [1] and Cibicides refulgens from [2]) analyses) as well as palynological (dinoflagellate cyst and pollen assemblages from [1]) data. The present study also describes the different statistical tests from which ecological groups have been established from palynological indicators in [1].
