Apollo 16 impact melt 60635,19 Bulk Chemistry Major and Minor Elements
This dataset contains major and minor element contents for feldspathic Apollo 16 impact melt 60635,19. The sample was digested using HF and HNO3 before being brought into solution prior to analyzing with an Inductively Coupled Plasma-Optical Emission Spectrometer (ICP-OES) at the University of Notre Dame's Center for Environmental Science and Technology (CEST). SiO2 is determined by difference due to Si being volatilized in the acid digestion process as SiF4.
