The two data files (Excel) in this collection contain (a) individual fossil otolith data (geometric measurements, shape characteristics and elemental composition) and (b) time series over the past two millennia at 10-y intervals for otolith deposition rate and proxies for upper ocean temperature and primary productivity. The latter time series were provided to the authors by Dr. James Kennett. All data from sediment cores from the Santa Barbara Basin. William A.
