GSC electron microprobe (17 oxides) (#1)
GSC electron microprobe 17 oxides + total
Mineral analyses were acquired on a Cameca SX-50 microprobe fitted with 4 wavelength-dispersive spectrometers, with a take-off angle of 40 degrees. The operating conditions were 20kV accelerating voltage and 10nA current, using a focused beam. Count times were 10 seconds on peak and 5 seconds off-peak. The ZAF matrix correction program used was that of Armstrong (1988). Reference standards used were a mixture of natural and synthetic pure metals, simple oxides and simple compounds.
Detection limits are not given in the original laboratory reports, but have been inferred, based on the analytical results.
