Summary

This dataset includes X-ray fluorescence (XRF) major-oxide and trace-elements analysis and inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) trace-element analysis of Cenozoic, mainly Quaternary, basalts, hawaiites, mugearites, benmoreites, and trachytes from the northern third of the Harrat Rahat volcanic field and surrounding area in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. These samples were collected and analyzed to support geologic mapping of the volcanic field and reconstruction of its volcanic history as part of a collaborative project between the Saudi Geological Survey (SGS) and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), supported by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Chemical analyses were performed at the GeoAnalytical Laboratory of Washington [...]
