Format

A data frame with 9 variables:

age_calkaBP

Age (calendar kilo year BP).

SeaLev_shortPC1

Sea Level (meters above present day), climate reconstructions (scaled first principal component of seven sea level reconstructions (0-430 ka)).

SeaLev_shortPC1_err_sig

Sea Level standard deviation from bootstrap (meters), climate reconstructions (scaled first principal component of seven sea level reconstructions (0-430 ka)).

SeaLev_shortPC1_err_lo

Sea Level 95% confidence interval lower bound (meters), climate reconstructions (scaled first principal component of seven sea level reconstructions (0-430 ka)).

SeaLev_shortPC1_err_up

Sea Level 95% confidence interval upper bound (meters), climate reconstructions (scaled first principal component of seven sea level reconstructions (0-430 ka)).

SeaLev_longPC1

Sea Level (meters above present day), climate reconstructions (scaled first principal component of five sea level reconstructions (0-798 ka)).

SeaLev_longPC1_err_sig

Sea Level standard deviation from bootstrap (meters), climate reconstructions (scaled first principal component of five sea level reconstructions (0-798 ka)).

SeaLev_longPC1_err_lo

Sea Level 95% confidence interval lower bound (meters), climate reconstructions (scaled first principal component of five sea level reconstructions (0-798 ka)).

SeaLev_longPC1_err_up

Sea Level 95% confidence interval upper bound (meters), climate reconstructions (scaled first principal component of five sea level reconstructions (0-798 ka)).
