Malcolm McMillan,


This data was collected during field seasons in 2018 and 2019 for the corresponding author's PhD dissertation at the University of Melbourne to study the thermal history of the Malawi region. Results were obtained at Melbourne Thermochronology at the University of Melbourne, Australia. This dataset contains apatite fission track, apatite (U-Th-Sm)/He and zircon (U-Th)/He thermochronology results, along with inverse thermal history models generated from QTQt. Analytical methodology can be found in: McMillan, M. F., Boone, S. C., Kohn, B. P., Gleadow, A. J., & Chindandali, P. R. (2022).
