The PRISM 8�x10� data set represents several years ofinvestigation by PRISM (Pliocene Research, Interpretation, andSynoptic Mapping) Project members. One of the goals of PRISMis to produce time-slice reconstructions of intervals ofwarmer than modern climate within the Pliocene Epoch. Thefirst of these was chosen to be at 3.0 Ma (time scale ofBerggren et al., 1985) and is published in Global andPlanetary Change (Dowsett et al., 1994). This documentcontains the actual data sets and a brief explanation of howthey were constructed. For paleoenvironmental interpretationsand discussion of each data set, see Dowsett et al., inpress. The data sets includes sea level, land icedistribution, vegetation or land cover, sea surfacetemperature...
The data contained in this data set are derived from the NOAAAdvanced Very High Resolution Radiometer Multichannel SeaSurface Temperature data (AVHRR MCSST), which are obtainablefrom the Distributed Active Archive Center at the JetPropulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, Calif. The JPL tapescontain weekly images of SST from October 1981 throughDecember 1990 in nine regions of the world ocean: NorthAtlantic, Eastern North Atlantic, South Atlantic, Agulhas,Indian, Southeast Pacific, Southwest Pacific, NortheastPacific, and Northwest Pacific.This data set represents the results of calculations carriedout on the NOAA data and also contains the source code of theprograms that made the calculations. The objective was...
