Entry ID: ASAC_2212

Abstract: Metadata record for data from ASAC Project 2212 See the link below for public details on this project.

From the abstracts of two of the references:

Ocean Drilling Program hole 504B revealed an ocean crust hydrothermal sulphur anomaly on the dyke-lava transition, with implications for global sulphur sinks. Here we confirm the presence of the anomaly sporadically along 7.5km of ... View entire text

Purpose: S (sulfur isotopes)

Bulk pyrite done: ie a wholerock sulfur isotope extraction was carried out.

Sample wt: sample weight in g of powder aliquot used for wholerock sulfur isotope extraction.

S+dish+filt: Weight of processed sample product plus the sample dish and
S+dish+the extracting filter (g)

dish corrn: a small weight correction required to account for water adhesion to the sample dish ... View entire text
