X-ray fluorescence (XRF) data from IODP site U1534


Dataset is comprised of X-ray fluorescence (XRF) data from sediments from International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) Expedition 382, Site U1534, South Falkland Sediment Drift, 53.18967 S, 58.76083 W (605 m water depth).

The sediment cores were collected from 3 holes using the advanced piston corer onboard RV Joides Resolution from site U1534 between 29/03/2019 and 02/04/2019. XRF data was collected using the XRF Core Scanner III (AVAATECH Serial No. 12) at the XRF Core Scanner Lab at the MARUM (Center for Marine Environmental Sciences, University of Bremen, Germany), March-May 2021.

The data were collected as part of a project aiming to investigate the sensitivity of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation to variability in Pacific-Atlantic connectivity via the 'cold water route'. Dr Victoria Louise Peck was the principle investigator for this project.
