21 surface sediment samples were collected from Prydz Bay, Antarctica, during the 18th~21st Chinese National Antarctic Research Expedition (CHINARE, 2001-2011). These samples were analized in laborotary and contents of 13 chemical elements were obtained, including C, N, S, K, Ca, Ti, et. al. This dataset provided the raw data and basic statistical results such as minimum,maximum,mean, standard deviation, CV, and relation coefficient. Cluster analysis shows that these 13 elements can be classified as two categories: C, N and S as one cluster, and the rest as another one.Browse
