Table of K-Ar data from Shimanto paleoseismic Faults
datasetposted on 09.10.2019 by Donald Fisher
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.
Data used in fault dating at three localities in the northern Shimanto belt of Japan: the Goshikinohama Fault, the roof thrust of the Okitsu melange, and the Nobeoka Thrust. Samples were separated into different size fractions, percentage of illite polytypes were determined by modeling XRD patterns, and K-Ar dates were obtained for each size fraction as a function of illite polytype percentages. Geographic coordinates for sample localities are included
