Curtin University SHRIMP Digital Mineral Library

Curtin University

Project Description

The John de Laeter Centre at Curtin University aims to develop a geochronology library for the Sensitive High Resolution Ion MicroProbe (SHRIMP) and make the data and associated provenance information openly discoverable and reusable.

The high value geochemical data could have applications in geological mapping of the Australian continent, tectonic reconstructions of plate motions, space and planetary science, hominid evolution, paleodiversity, climate change and resource exploration.
