Supplemental Information

This data distribution package consists of multiple CSV files which provide sample locations and descriptions, geochemical data, analytical methods, and instrumentation detection limits for analysis of the samples collected for this project. For each analytical data type, a primary table presents the analytical results, sample locations, and other information about each sample. A secondary table provides detailed information about the methods and detection limits of the instrumentation used to analyze the data. 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. Attribute information for each layer is included in this metadata file under the "Entity_and_Attribute_Information" section. The metadata layer provides the metadata, codesets, or other documentation files applicable to all layers. The data layer(s) are titled:
 >pan-con-trace-element-ree: trace-element and rare-earth-element analysis of pan-concentrate samples
 >rock-major-minor-oxide-trace-element-ree: major- and minor-oxide, trace-element, and rare-earth-element analysis of pulverized rock samples
 >rock-trace-element-ree: trace-element and rare-earth-element analysis of pulverized rock samples
 >slab-xrf-major-minor-oxide-trace-element: major- and minor-oxide and trace-element analysis of rock-slab samples
 >stream-sed-trace-element-ree: trace-element and rare-earth-element analysis of stream-sediment and soil samples
 >sample-location-details-no-suitable-media: list of visited locations in which samples were not collected for reasons noted

Metadata

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.
