Data Products

The latest version of the basic database will be available for download from the project website as a read-only Excel workbook and CSV text files.    The database will in addition be archived with the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration World Data Center for Paleoclimatology, with full documentation as required by the WDC, to ensure the long-term archiving of the database.

The workbooks can be imported directly into a GIS, e.g. ESRI ArcGIS, to allow for searching of the database by any of the fields – e.g. time slice, dune type, OSL method etc.

A version of the database with a limited suite of information about the ages is also available for download as a kml file, which can be imported into Google Earth to explore the context of each age and sample site.  This is envisaged as a potentially valuable teaching tool.
