How to Contribute Data


Datasets can be contributed to EarthChem via the EarthChem Library. You may contribute data in any format, but you must document your dataset with as much relevant information as possible, including analytical data quality and sample provenance. We strongly recommend the use of data submission templates. If a template does not yet exist for your data type, you may edit an existing template to fit your needs or contact us at

What to contribute


We welcome contributions of a broad range of data, including but not limited to, compositional data for rocks, minerals, inclusions, volcanic gases, soils, water, and more; geochemical synthesis datasets; geochronological data*; petrographic descriptions of samples; kinetic data from geochemical and petrological experiments; maps; sample images; and code for data reduction and modeling. 

To learn more about data submission, please review our Data Submission Guidelines or contact us for additional support.

*Geochronology data such as (U-Th)/He, U-Pb, Ar-Ar, cosmogenic nuclides, and U-series data should be submitted to the Geochron system. During the submission process, you will seamlessly be able to contribute your data to the EarthChem Library.
