  • Data include four charcoal concentration datasets derived from radiocarbon-dated lake sediments in the Brazilian Pantanal, from which regional fire histories can be inferred over the last few millennia. Each dataset provides raw counts of charcoal fragments > 125 um calculated per cubic centimetre of sediment. Samples measuring 0.5 to 1.5 cc were analysed at each 1-cm depth. Contained within each data sheet are radiocarbon dates for several horizons in the lake sediment for the derivation of age-depth models for a chronological framework for each record.
