Paleotemperature data across the Cenozoic

Description

Paleotemperature data across the Cenozoic inferred from delta O18 measurements

Usage

1

Details

Paleotemperature data inferred from delta 018 measurements using the equation of Epstein et al. (1953). The format is a dataframe with the two following variables:

Age

a numeric vector corresponding to the geological age, in Myrs before the present

Temperature

a numeric vector corresponding to the inferred temperature at that age
