This dataset contains subfossil chironomid (Diptera: Chironomidae) species counts and the corresponding chironomid-inferred summer temperatures from a sediment core recovered from Lake N14 in southern Greenland. The record covers the period from approximately 13,800 to 9,900 years ago (cal BP). These data were generated for the study named below, which should be consulted for details and cited when using these data.
