This University of Arizona course website features an outline to interpreting ocean cores as they relate to past environmental conditions (e.g. sedimentation rates, climate, etc.). The outline includes figures and information about sedimentation, the history of interpreting ocean cores, how proxies in ocean cores reveal past climate, and use of oxygen isotopes to infer past climate. Key terms are hyperlinked to related pages and further information.
