Garnet/melt partition coefficient experiments

Nielsen, Roger L
Ustunisik, Gokce
This dataset presents compiled experimental mineral/melt partitioning data for garnet from the literature (e.g. no unpublished collections). This dataset can help users to calculate differentiation scenarios (by sorting for compositions that match the system of interest), test models or create calibration datasets for models, and facilitate experimental design and data management plans. The format of the data is oriented vertically – each column represents the data from one published experiment – including experimental conditions, source publication, analytical techniques and the composition of the starting composition, liquid, mineral or fluid and the partition coefficient for the elements analyzed. This format is inclusive, and therefore complex, and care should be taken in processing the data from this raw form. Please see the “Readme" tab for further explanations and instructions. This data is presented in the traceDs template, a format for documenting experimental data that is available on the EarthChem website for investigator use. If you find errors in the data transcription or any omissions please contact Roger Nielsen or Gokce Ustunisik (; with details of the error or a copy of the paper to be added.
