PetroChron Antarctica is a new relational database containing a compilation of petrological, geochemical and geochronological data from more than 10,000 geological samples across Antarctica.
PetroChron Antarctica contains spatial meta-information to enable visualization and analysis of the database using an online interactive map, which highlights the variability in crustal geology at the continental scale and can be used for interdisciplinary scientific studies. PetroChron Antarctica is freely available through Zenodo and an ESRI Web Feature Service.
The creation of PetroChron Antarctica was supported by the SCAR Geosciences Group, including INSTANT, SERCE, and PAIS Scientific Research Programmes and the GHF subgroup. Feedback is welcome.
