Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
The database consists of 1830 analyses of clinopyroxenes (1206 EMP and 624 LA-ICPMS) and 1600 analyses of olivines (965 EMP and 635 LA-ICPMS) from fourteen pumice, three scoriae and eight lava samples belonging to the Somma-Vesuvius activity of the last 33,000 years. The analysis methods used are Electron-microprobe (EMP) and Laser ablation – inductively coupled plasma – mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS). This study has been carried out as part of the “Faro 2011” project and was financed by: 1) the University of Napoli "Federico II"; and 2) the Arc Centre of Excellence in Ore Deposits “Codes” of the University of Tasmania. The research was financially supported by the PRIN 2010-2011 grant (Prot. 2010PMKZX7).
