Plant wax composition and compound-specific δD data from a loess section in Darai Kalon, Southern Tajikistan covering the last 250 thousand years


The data set contains plant wax biomarker and CaCO3 concentration data from the Darai Kalon loess section in Southern Tajikistan over the time-period of the last 250 thousand years. It includes long-chain n-alkane ACL data, long-chain n-carboxylic acid Index-C data as well as CPI and compound-specific δD data for both long-chain n-alkanes and long-chain n-carboxylic acids.
