Work Description

Title: Low-Fe(III) Greenalite Was a Primary Mineral from Neoarchean Oceans (Raw Data) Open Access Deposited
Attribute Value
  • X-ray absorption data was collected at the Canadian Light Source (CLS) and the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL). X-ray diffraction data collected at the United States Geological Survey in Boulder.
  • Note: The "Readme_Metadata" file was updated on March 15, 2018 to include a citation to the related article making use of this data and was reformatted to be presented as a pdf file rather than as a docx file.

  • This data set is comprised of synchrotron-based X-ray transmission and absorption spectroscopy data as well as X-ray diffraction patterns that were performed to characterize the best-preserved examples of nanoscale iron silicate mineral inclusions from 2.5 billion-year-old Banded Iron Formations (BIFs) and ferruginous cherts.
