This dataset is a weekly to bi-weekly resolution 4-year time series (2010-2014) of GDGT and alkenone flux in the northern Gulf of Mexico. The TEX86 and U37K' indices are also included, which are sea surface temperature proxies based on the distribution of GDGTs and alkenones, respectively. For further information regarding data collection and/or processing methods refer to Richey and Tierney (2016).
