Description

This dataset is a compilation of new and previously reported results from bulk sediment inorganic analyses (major/trace, carbonate, and Sr/Nd isotopic compositions), organic analyses (total and isotopic C and N), and compound-specific organic analyses (biomarker concentrations) of sediment cores from cruise SO93 on R/V Sonne in the Bay of Bengal. These data are used as records of post-glacial changes in precipitation and vegetation to investigate the role of these changes in controlling provenance and chemical weathering of sediments exported by the Ganges-Brahmaputra rivers, and the potential climate feedbacks through organic-carbon burial in the Bengal Fan.,Hein, C.J., Galy, V., Galy, A., France-Lanord, C., Kudrass, H., & Schwenk, T., (2017), "Post-glacial climate forcing of surface processes in the Ganges–Brahmaputra river basin and implications for carbon sequestration."
