Biomarker metadata and data for cores MD99-2331, MD95-2040, and MD95-2042: depth, age, summed OH-GDGT, iGDGT, and di-unsaturated and tri-unsaturated C37 alkenone concentrations, OH-GDGT-based, iGDGT-based, and alkenone-based paleothermometric indices, GDGT 2/GDGT-3 ratio, and biomarker-based sea surface temperature (SST) and 0‐ to 200‐m sea temperature (subT; gamma function probability distribution for target temperatures with a = 4.5 and b = 15) estimates. The 1σ analytical uncertainties are 0.008 (0.5 °C) for RI-OH, 0.007 (0.2 °C) for RI-OH′, 0.003 (0.1 °C) for TEX86, 0.263 for GDGT-2/GDGT-3, and 0.010 (0.26 °C) for UK′37. RI-OH′-SST estimates are from the following global calibration: SST = (RI-OH′ + 0.029)/0.0422 (Fietz et al., 2020). RI-OH-SST estimates are from the following global calibration: SST = (RI-OH − 1.11)/0.018 (Lü et al., 2015). TEX86H-SST estimates are from the following regional paleocalibration: SST = 68.4 × TEX86H + 33.0 (Darfeuil et al., 2016). UK′37-SST estimates are from the following global calibration: SST = 29.876 × UK′37 − 1.334 (Conte et al., 2006). Bayesian calibrations were also used for TEX86-SST and TEX86-subT estimates (BAYSPAR; Tierney & Tingley, 2014, 2015) and for UK′37-SST estimates (BAYSPLINE; Tierney & Tingley, 2018). Core MD95-2040 UK′37 and summed di-unsaturated and tri-unsaturated C37 alkenone concentration data are from Pailler and Bard (2002). Core MD95-2042 UK′37 and summed di-unsaturated and tri-unsaturated C37 alkenone concentration data covering the 70–45 ka BP period are from Darfeuil et al. (2016). GDGT data for core MD95-2042 samples with TEX86 values below 0.4 are deemed anomalous and are thus excluded from any description and analysis. Cmbsf, centimeters below sea floor; MIS, marine isotope stage; DO, Dansgaard–Oeschger event; GS, Greenland stadial; H, Heinrich event; GDGT, glycerol dialkyl glycerol tetraether; and N/A, not available.
