Fildes Peninsula, South Shetland Islands
Chronological and sedimentological studies from the Fildes Peninsula, South Shetland Islands.
Consisting of the following folders
BChron - input/output data and R code for chronological analysis from sites on King George Island
RCarbon - input/output data and R code for chronological analysis from sites on King George Island
Fildes_data - datasets and metadata for data from Fildes Peninsula
These folders contain data and code for stratigraphic chronological and sedimentological data and data compilations from the Fildes Peninsula, King George Island, and the South Shetland Islands.
The data have been used to constrain deglaciation and glacier dynamics on Fildes Peninsula.
The code folder contains R code and data used to analyse the data and construct figures for the following submitted manuscripts:
