Skaergaard mush thickness (NERC grant NE/J021520/1)

Dataset description

Dihedral angle data and bulk rock P2O5 concentrations for cumulates from the Skaergaard Intrusion of East Greenland. The data were used to constrain the thickness of the mushy layer at the point in the stratigraphic where apatite arrives as a liquidus phase. The work was published: Holness et al. (2017) Journal of Petrology, doi: 10.1093/petrology/egx040
