This data-set contains three sheets with proxy data; phytoliths, diatoms and isotopes. The phytolith sheet contains the number of counted phytoliths per morphotype (shape) category at each analysed depth and the diatom sheet contains the number of diatoms counted per species and depth. The isotope sheet contains both elemental data (C and N) and isotope data (δ13C and δ15N) which was analysed at every 10th centimeter.
