Mineral Analyses and Compositional Diagrams for Eucrite-type Achondrites

Mittlefehldt, David W; ORCID: 0000-0002-5920-8987
Mineral analyses and mineral composition diagrams for 42 eucrite-type achondrites determined by electron microprobe analysis at NASA-Johnson Space Center are presented. The data were collected to support petrologic interpretations of the meteorites as given in the related publications identified in the datafiles. Full analytical protocols for the analyses are presented in the supplementary materials of related publication #1 (Eucrite-type Mafic Achondrites: Petrology and O Isotopic Composition).
