This dataset includes sedimentological and geochemical analyses of more than 80 gravity cores retrieved from Antarctic Peninsula region during the KARP (Korea Antarctic Research Program) cruise from 1996 to 2006. The cores are generally shorter than 10 m and represent late Pleistocene and Holocene sedimentation. The following data were obtained for all cores: magnetic susceptibility, X-radiographs, granulometry, total carbon and nitrogen content, and total organic and inorganic carbon content. Chronology of the cores were determined by AMS radiocarbon dating method. For selected cores, diatom assemblage, trace and rare earth element concentration, stable and radiogenic isotope compositions were analyzed.
