Supplemental Information

In addition to the data tables, this distribution package includes ALS Chemex-provided PDFs that describe their sample preparation and geochemical analysis procedures. The DGGS metadata standard extends the FGDC standard to include elements that are required to facilitate our internal data management. These elements, referred to as "layers," group and describe files that have intrinsic logical or topological relationships. This dataset is described as a single layer. Attribute information for the layer is included in this metadata file under the "Entity_and_Attribute_Information" section. The layer is titled:
 >rock-trace-element-ree: This data distribution package consists of two CSV files which provide sample locations and descriptions, geochemical data, analytical methods, and instrumentation detection limits for trace element and rare earth element analysis of rock samples.


Metadata is the data about the data and answers "Who, what, when, where, how and why?" about the dataset. Please see the DGGS Metadata README page for information about our metadata.
