ARCC team member Colin Courtney-Mustaphi co-authored a study that looked at the reporting patterns of data producers of lead-210 dated sediments to help suggest guidelines for crucial information to report for data reproducibility, reuse, and archiving. Lead-210 profiles are one of most frequently used techniques for dating recent sediments over the past 150 years – a useful for time frame for understanding rapid ecosystem changes.
The new paper is available now in the journal Quaternary Geochronology.
