Geochemistry of Igneous Rocks

Bernard Gunn, No institutional affiliation is known

This website contains an abundance of data on the geochemistry of igneous rocks. The site provides very brief descriptions of many types of terrestrial and lunar igneous rocks, their regional distribution and classification, and examples of their geochemical trends and fingerprints. Graphs that plot the geochemical composition of both terrestrial and extraterrestrial igneous rocks are also featured. This site could be useful for upper level geology students doing independent research, as well as for geology faculty to create classroom exercises using the data sets. This resource is part of the Using Data collection.
