Work Description

Title: Widespread and persistent deposition of iron formations for two billion years: Compilation Dataset Open Access Deposited

http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/
Attribute Value
Methodology
  • We compiled estimates of the initial iron formation (IF) masses, estimated by various authors (cited for each IF) using the observed thicknesses and areal extents of each IF. Ages of each IF were constrained using relevant geochronological age constraints (cited for each IF). Units of age estimates are in million years ago or mega-annum (Ma) and masses are shown in gigatons (Gt).
Description
  • This IF compilation was assembled from the existing literature to understand if preservation biases affected the record of iron formations.
