Dataset Embargoed Access
The database includes 13615 garnet compositions of eight oxides commonly analysed in lab routines: SiO2, TiO2, Al2O3, Cr2O3, FeOtotal, MnO, MgO, and CaO (in wt%). These are complemented by the following covariables:
setting and metamorphic facies class: code indicating the geologic/tectonic setting of the host rock
composition class: code indicating the compositional class of the host rock
author: authors of the original paper providing the data
journal: journal of the original paper
region: origin of the data, in the format "region, country"
sample name: sample ID in the original paper
Pavg(kbar): if available, indicated pressure
Tavg(°C): if available, indicated temperature
host-rock type and/or metamorphic facies: facies indication of host rock
lithology and/or protolith: composition indication of host rock
This research was funded by DFG grant EY 23/27-1.
Files are currently under embargo but will be publicly accessible after December 31, 2022.
Data will be accessible when the associated paper is finally published. Please cite the paper and not the data.
