|DateView geochronology database
International geochronology and isotope database. More information on this database and on submitting data are available here. An overview of the design and operation of the database is also available, as is a summary of the system's capabilities in pdf format. Further contributions to the contents of this database are welcome. Non-commercial use of this database is free.
|StratDB lithostratigraphy, structural domain and ore deposit database
Database containing information on stratigraphic units from various countries and metamorphism/deformation in various structural domains. The design is based on that used for the IGCP509 and IGCP648 projects, but extends the time-span to cover all of Earth history. Database also contains attribute and location information for global ore deposits, initially compiled from the Geological Survey of Canada’s world mineral deposit compilation but subsequently supplemented and updated from numerous other sources and research projects. A large igneous province attribute and age compilation is also housed within StratDB.
Links are provided between this database and the DateView geochronology database to show ages available for various units. More information is available on the use of this database and on submitting data. Users may download summary information from the database as Excel spreadsheets. Some of these spreadsheets are specifically designed for semi-automatic importing into ARCGIS for constructing time-space correlation charts. Further details of this process are also available. Contributions to the contents of this database are welcome. Non-commercial use of this database is free.
|DepIso isotope database for ore deposits
Database containing isotope data (mostly Pb-Pb data but also some Sm-Nd, Re-Os, S and O isotopes) for deposits. Basic deposit information is from the StratDB database. The database currently contains analyses for more than 26,000 samples from more than 7,000 deposits around the world. Access to the Pb-Pb data is by invitation or for collaborators willing to contribute new data.
|ResinDB database for ion exchange resin distribution coefficients
Database containing ion exchange distribution coefficients of relevance to isotope geochemical separations. Contributions to the contents of this database are welcome. Non-commercial use of this database is free.
|LIP large igneous province database
Database containing information on large igneous provinces from around the world. This database is a component of the StratDB database. Access to most of the >5,000 records in the database is currently limited to participants in the MantlePlumes project. The information in the database was compiled and structured by Dr Richard Ernst and Dr Bruce Eglington. Users may download summary information from the database as Excel spreadsheets. Some of these spreadsheets are specifically designed for semi-automatic importing into ARCGIS for constructing time-space correlation charts. Non-commercial use of this database is free.
