Set ddata


The dataset comprises of site data and multiproxy analyses of the LP16 lake sediment cores extracted from Lago Pato, a small lake basin at 51.3031 S, 72.6816 W and approx 33 m a.s.l., which is topographically separated from Lago del Toro in Torres del Paine (TdP). The data are used to constrain glacier dynamics and lake level change in the TdP and Ultima Esperanza region over the last approx 30,000 cal a BP (30 ka).

Data for the LP16 sediment record consist of downcore measurements of biology, chronology, geochemistry, sedimentology proxy data collected extracted a current terrestrial shoreline in November 2015.
