Data sets

Data to ``The 4.2\,ka\,BP Event in northeastern China: a geospatial perspective'' L. A. Scuderi, X. Yang, S. E. Ascoli, and H. Li

Short summary
The lack of integration of data into a scientifically credible, globally assembled, information platform with consistent terminology and definitions hinders our understanding of the 4.2 ka BP Event. Using such an information platform, we show the presence of a strong and coherent signal for the 4.2 ka BP Event in northeastern China. Our prototype database approach, guided by semantic analysis and georeferencing, can serve as a guide to the assembly of a larger-scale global 4.2 ka database.
