Geochemical data, paleo-sea surface temperatures reconstructed by TEX86 paleothermometry and time intervals differentiated based thereon at ODP Sites 207-1258 and 207-1259, supplement to: Forster, Astrid; Schouten, Stefan; Baas, Marianne; Sinninghe Damsté, Jaap S (2007): Mid-Cretaceous (Albian-Santonian) sea surface temperature record of the tropical Atlantic Ocean.

Paleoclimate records of geologic time periods characterized by extreme global warmth such as the mid-Cretaceous are important for a better understanding of the Earth's climate system operating in an exceptionally warm mode. Here we applied an organic geochemical proxy (TEX86) on organic matter-rich Albian-Santonian sediments, recovered from Ocean Drilling Program Leg 207 Sites 1258 and 1259 on Demerara Rise, to reconstruct sea surface temperatures (SSTs) in the western equatorial Atlantic. Preceded by a stepwise Cenomanian...
