    High-precision CA-ID-TIMS (Chemical Abrasion Isotope Dilution Thermal Ionization Mass Spectrometry) Uranium-Lead geochronology of zircon, extracted from igneous plutonic and mineralised porphyry intrusions in the Rio Blanco-Los Bronces Cu Porphyry area, Chile. Eleven parent samples cover an age range of ca. 14 Ma to ca. 5 Ma. Sample Identifiers correspond to the NERC Highlight topic consortium project FAMOS (From Arc Magmas to Ores) samples from the Natural History Museum component of the project and Large et al.(2024) J. Pet, where full rock types, geo-references, petrography, and geochemistry of parent samples can be found in addition to zircon Cathodoluminesence and SEM characterization of zircon of samples, and the corresponding zircon trace element analyses (inclusive of U-Pb) by laser ablation ICPMS. This data provides insights into the crystallisation of zircon and timescales of porphyry copper deposits.

    Stable isotope data of organic carbon, nitrogen and sulfur as well as trace elements are used to explore how proxies with differing residence times in seawater respond to changes in the basin’s connectivity to the open ocean. The results show that species with a short residence time, such as nitrate and rare earth elements, may be more sensitive to geologically brief fluctuations in oceanographic conditions than long-lived species like sulfate. Details about the methodology and sampling strategy can be found in Stu¨eken, E.E., Viehmann, S. and Hohl, S.V., 2023, ACS Earth and Space Chemistry, 7(7), pp.1337-1349.

    Method development for trace-level analyses of phosphite in chloride-rich matrices. Dataset includes linearity data from the ion chromatograph (IC) in stand-alone mode and coupled to the inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometer (ICP-MS), with and without removing chloride from the solution, as well as nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) data for phosphorus species. The results demonstrate successful removal of the chloride matrix for analyses of phosphite in solutions at sub-ppb concentrations. Additional details about the methodology are published in Baidya, A.S. and Stüeken, E.E., 2024, Rapid Communications in Mass Spectrometry, 38(1), p.e9665.

    Measurements of the nitrogen content of hydrothermal graphite deposits and associated silicate rocks. The samples are of Paleoproterozoic age and allow constraining the behavior of nitrogen in abiotic hydrothermal graphite-forming systems. The results provide context for evaluating the biogenicity of Eoarchean graphite. More details are presented in Stüeken, E.E., Szilas, K. and van Hinsberg, V.J., 2023, Chemical Geology, 617, p.121274.

    This dataset contains the nitrogen, oxygen, and lithophile element geochemistry of whole rock, and distribution coefficients, and stable isotope fractionation factors for biotite, orthoclase, and plagioclase mineral separates from the Loch Doon Zoned Pluton, Scotland. The samples were collected from the northern limb of the Loch Doon pluton and are petrologically classified as are granodiorites and granites which show geochemical evidence for being a cogenetic zoned pluton. The data were collected over a time period of 2019-2022. These data were collected to investigate elemental partitioning and stable isotope fractionation of nitrogen between biotite, plagioclase, and orthoclase relative to each other and to the system (whole rock) during magmatic differentiation. This project was curiosity-driven science, and the anticipated interest groups are assumed to be the wider research community via scholarship and analytical protocols. These data were collected by an international team of scientists as part of Dr Toby Boocock’s PhD project. The full list of contributors are shown below: Boocock, TJ., Stüeken, ES., König, R., Mikhail, S, The University of St Andrews, UK (performed analysis, acquired samples, interpreted data) Bybee, GM, The University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa (performed analysis) Boyce, AJ, Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre, UK (performed analysis) Prytulak, J, Durham University, UK (interpreted data) Buisman, I, University of Cambridge, UK (performed analysis)

    The data report new F, Cl, and Br fluid/melt partition coefficients for intermediate to silicic melts, for which F and Br data are particularly lacking; and for varying CO2-H2O contents. The data was collected from basaltic andesite and dacite rock experiments from the Kelud volcano in Indonesia and Quizapu volcano in Chile Over the period of two years, 2020 – 2022. The experiments were conducted at pressures 50–120 MPa, temperatures 800–1100 °C, and volatile compositions [molar XH2O = H2O/(H2O +CO2)] of 0.55 to 1, with redox conditions around the Nickel-Nickel Oxygen buffer (ƒO2 ≈ NNO). Experiments were not doped with Cl, Br, or F and were conducted on natural crystal-bearing volcanic products at conditions close to their respective pre-eruptive state. The data was collected to assess the effects of changing fluid composition (XH2O) on Br fluid/melt partitioning for the first time. Three tables of data are provided; Table 1.xlsx Table 1 Experimental conditions, which were conducted under NNO oxygen buffer.
