Dataset contains benthic foraminifera assemblage and stable isotope measurements. Stable isotope measurements are presented in δ13C and δ18O (‰). Diversity indices include Shannon, Fisher’s Alpha and evenness. Benthic foraminifera abundance is reported as individuals per unit mass (indiv./g).
The purpose of this study was to utilize microcosm experiments to extricate the relative control of physical (e.g., sedimentation type) and chemical (e.g., oil concentration) environmental drivers on benthic foraminifera abundance, diversity, and stable isotope composition related to marine oil snow from microcosm experiments performed at Wageningen University.
