Coupled in-situ SIMS d34S and LA-ICP-MS trace element data for pyrite from subduction zone related submarine hydrothermal vent fields
Coupled SIMS d34S and trace element LA-ICP-MS data of near endmember pyrite from subduction zon related submarine hydrothermal vent fields. The dataset represents the first of its kind, where d34S values and trace element data is coupled on a spatial resolution of approximately 25µm. The dataset reveals a correlation of trace elements with d34S values. The dataset is part of the manuscript from Falkenberg et al. "Pyrite trace element proxies for magmatic volatile influx in submarine subduction-related hydrothermal systems"
Steps to reproduce
The data was gathered following these steps: a) Petrography and microscopic observations, b) Identification and imaging of mineral phases by SEM, c) Major element analysis by EPMA, d) SIMS d34S spot (~10 µm) measurment on the same EPMA spot, e) Verifiying the position of SIMS spots by SEM, f) LA-ICP-MS spot (20-25 µm) analyses at same spot over the SIMS craters, g) LA-ICP-MS mapping of selected grains.
