21Ne Data

21Ne Template The 21Ne Template File shows the minimum information required by ACE to import 21Ne samples, and lists a single sample (05BT4) for example purposes. Using Excel or OpenOffice you can add rows to this file using units given here. Additional sample attributes (for example erosion, or tectonic uplift rate) can also be added for each sample as additional columns.  Optional sample attributes are listed here, to use them you must add the variable name in the header exactly as listed. When ready to import into ACE, save as a Windows CSV file.

ACE Calibration Data. For easy access the calibration dataset which is used by default for 21Ne is given here:

The dataset is from Niedermann et al., 1994,’Cosmic-ray produced 21Ne in terrestrial quartz: the neon inventory of Sierra Nevada quartz separates’, Earth and Planetary Science Letters (link), with updated independent ages from Niedermann, 2000, ‘The 21Ne production rate in quartz revisited’, Earth and Planetary Science Letters (link).
