Mottl, M.
Collection of hydrothermal vent fluid chemistry data from Mid-Atlantic Ridge, Lucky Strike - Mainly end-member data for major, minor, and trace species, transition metals, rare earth elements, dissolved gases, and isotopes of He, C, 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. Mottl), available at
Coverage Scope: Regional (Continents, Oceans)
Geographic Location: Mid-Atlantic Ridge, Lucky Strike, Atlantic Ocean
