Electron micro probe analyser (EMPA) glass standards measurements associated with glass geochemistry data of Lateglacial cryptotephra from the International Continental Scientific Drilling Program (ICDP) Dead Sea core


This dataset provides the data for the four glass standards used for monitoring of the precision and accuracy of electron probe microanalyses (EPMA) during analytical runs of cryptotephra glass-shards in the International Continental Scientific Drilling Program (ICDP) sediment core 5017-1 (see first dataset). For each EPMA run, all four glass standards were measured. The major-element composition of the glass standards was measured using a JEOL JXA-8230 electron microprobe at GFZ Potsdam, Germany (15 kV, 5-10 nA, 5-10 µm beam size). Instrumental calibration used natural mineral standards. Glass standards were Lipari obsidian (Hunt & Hill 1996, doi:10.1016/1040-6182(95)00088-7; Kuehn et al. 2011, doi:10.1016/j.quaint.2011.08.022) and MPI-Ding glasses ATHO-G, StHs-6-80-G and GOR-132-G (Jochum et al. 2006, doi:10.1029/2005GC001060).
