Entry ID: GERM

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: The GERM (Geochemical Earth Reference Model) Reservoir Database is
comprised of a collection geochemical data that was compiled for major
Earth and Solar System reservoirs and includes the major element oxide
and trace element abundances for chondritic meteorites, primitive
Earth mantle, mid-ocean ridge basalts (MORB), and the Sun. The data
come from well-known and respected sources in Geochemistry (please see
the references below) and may be used in geochemical modeling provided
that credit is given to the data provider(s). The database may be
accessed via the following URL:
