Metadata (CSV columns explained):

  • Weblink_to_slide_at_NHMUK_Data_Portal: Weblink to each slide's image and information at the NHM Data Portal
  • IRN: NHMUK Internal Record Number of the slide
  • ZF_PF_no.: Slide's registration number (written on each slide for identification); ZooForam (ZF), PalaeoForam (PF)
  • Slide_square_no.: number of the square on the slide when containing different species
  • Genus: genus as written by Henry Buckley on slide
  • cf.: whether Henry Buckley advised to consult other material to confirm species identification (“cf.” written before species name on the slide)
  • Species: species as written by Henry Buckley on slide
  • Sub_species: sub-species as written by Henry Buckley on slide
  • Notes_on_slides: notes written by Henry Buckley on the slide
  • Geologic_time: as written by Henry Buckley on slide
  • Grade: sieve size as written by Henry Buckley on slide
  • No_of_individuals: number of specimens on the slide
  • Observations_M.C.Rillo.2015: observations during digitisation of the collection
  • Buckley_Slide_SL_no.: slide number given by Henry Buckley (not consistent, use ZF_PF_no. instead)
  • Former_Museum_no.: old museum number for the sediments sampled, relevant to find the bulk sediments in the NHMUK Ocean-Bottom Deposits (OBD) Collection. For more recent sediments' museum number use IRN_Residue_OBD
  • IRN_Residue_OBD: NHMUK Internal Record Number of the sediment used to mount slide. Bulk sediments can be found in the NHM Ocean-Bottom Deposits (OBD) Collection.
  • Vessel: vessel name that collected the sediment
  • Station_no.: station number of expedition that collected the sediment
  • Collection_date: date the sediment was collected by the vessel (from 1800s and 1900s only; if any 2000s appear it is an error)
  • Collection_info: information on how sediment was collected (more information can be found in the NHM Ocean-Bottom Deposits Collection, using the IRN_Residue_OBD number)
  • Sea_Depth_meters_NOAA: sea depth of latitude and longitude coordinates, obtained using R package marmap. Attention: this was calculated irrespective of the type of sample (either seafloor sediment or tow).
  • Sea_Depth_meters: sea depth in meters, as written by Henry Buckley on slide or converted from fathoms
  • Sea_Depth_fathoms: sea depth in fathoms (fms), as written by Henry Buckley on slide or converted from meters or feet (1 fms = 1.8288 m ; 1 fms = 6 feet)
  • Sea_Depth_feet: sea depth in feet as written by Henry Buckley on slide; or converted from fathoms
  • Tow: equal 1 (one) if sample was collected from the tow (instead of seafloor sediment); 0 (zero) otherwise
  • Sample_depth_min_cm: upper depth of sample from seafloor
  • Sample_depth_max_cm: lower depth of sample from seafloor
  • Lat.decimal: latitude decimal from -90 to +90
  • Long.decimal: longitude decimal from -180 to +180
  • Lat.degrees: latitude degrees as written by Henry Buckley on slide
  • Lat.minutes: latitude minutes as written by Henry Buckley on slide
  • Lat.seconds: latitude seconds as written by Henry Buckley on slide
  • Lat.N.S: North or South as written by Henry Buckley on slide
  • Long.degrees: longitude degrees as written by Henry Buckley on slide
  • Long.minutes: longitude minutes as written by Henry Buckley on slide
  • Long.seconds: longitude seconds as written by Henry Buckley on slide
  • Long.W.E: West or East as written by Henry Buckley on slide
  • Ocean_Sea: place where sediment was collected
