210Po-210Pb Time series Isotopic Data and Eruption Ages for West Mata Boninite Lavas, 2008-2010
These are the data used to calculate eruption ages for lava samples collected at West Mata submarine volcano (NE Lau Basin) on the NE Lau Event Response Cruise (NELRC) in May 2009, which was sponsored by Ridge 2000 and Margins NSF programs. One additional sample collected in 2012 has also been dated.
Coverage Scope: Regional (Continents, Oceans)
Geographic Location: Kingdom of Tonga, NE Lau Basin, Pacific Ocean
