This Electronic Appendix includes supplementary data to that reported within the thesis titled "Mobilisation and Loss of Noble Gas and Halogen Elements During the Impact Melting of Ordinary Chondrites" submitted for a PhD degree at the University of Manchester by Benjamin E Farrant. The spreadsheets contain quantitative electron probe microanalyzer (EPMA) point analysis data from various mineral phases. Data for five meteorites (Chelyabinsk, Chergach, Chico, Gao-Guenie and Kilabo) are provided and the names of the meteorites are named in the spreadsheet filename to indicate which meteorite the data within that spreadsheet relate to. Data for the minerals olivine, low and high-Ca pyroxene, chromite, ilmenite, feldspar, apatite and merrillite as well as data for feldspathic glass are included. Separate tabs within each spreadsheet indicate which mineral the data of that tab are from. These data are used to determine the average mineral chemistries reported within the text of the thesis.


Steps to reproduce

Oxide wt.% data is the raw instrumental data that was measured during point analyses. Cation formula values are calculated using the methods outlined in Deer, (1966).
