The Aleutian Arc Data System

James Myers, University of Wyoming, Department of Geology and Geophysics

The Aleutian Arc Data System is an interactive database providing access to chemical, petrographic and spatial data concerning the geology of the Aleutian islands. A summary of physical characteristics and an overview of exploration history is provided for each island. Links are also provided that show the samples collected from the island and the island's geochemistry, including searches for major, trace, and rare earth elements, and isotopic results.
