Collection of hydrothermal vent fluid chemistry data from EPR11-13N - End-member data for major, minor, and trace species, transition metals, rare earth elements, and isotopes of Li, B, and Sr. This file is just one part of a much larger effort (VentDB) to make available to the scientific community as much hydrothermal ridge vent chemistry data as possible (for a list of all the VentDB related data collections available, search the EarthChem Library for the term “VentDB”). For more information about this compilation, please see “Explanatory Notes and Master Chemical Item Spreadsheet for the VentDB Data Collections housed in the EarthChem Library” (M.
