Argon data for Central Andes (Domeyko Range, Chile)

June 19, 2020

This dataset accompanies planned publication 'Gondwanan inheritance on the building of the western Central Andes (Domeyko Range, Chile): Structural and thermochronological approach (U-Pb and 40Ar-39Ar)'. The Ar/Ar data is for samples that record the sedimentation of the area. The geochronology provides time constraints for the sedimentation studied in the manuscript. Samples were collected from the Domeyko Range by Mauricio Espinoza (University of Concepcion, Chile), who sent them to the USGS Denver Argon Geochronology Laboratory for Ar/Ar analysis.
