This dataset accompanies Kemp et al 2009, “Timing and magnitude of recent accelerated sea-level rise (North Carolina, United States)”. It consists of soil core profile information from two salt marsh sites located in the Albemarle-Pamlico estuarine system on the coast of North Carolina, USA. Organic matter content and dry bulk density was measured for each core to assess the influence of compaction. At each site a core was analyzed using a number of dating methods including accelerator mass spectrometry, radiocarbon dating, Pb210, Cs137, and a pollen chronohorizon to develop an age depth model in order to reconstruct relative sea level rise over time.
