In this paper we present:

  • Chemical depth profiles from the highly heterogeneous media (amygdale calcium carbonate embedded in the surrounding basalt)
  • The presence of oxides and sulphides within inclusion material allows us to derive elemental abundance calibration factors
  • With the RSCs corrections the quantitative analysis of more complex mineralogical phases within the inclusion is conducted by correlating atomic abundance fractions in ternary diagrams
  • Stoichiometric abundances can be reconstructed using our method
