FTIR reflectance spectral chert database


Hyper-spectral data obtained from 121 chert samples: 60 Ft Payne (30 from Elco, IL; 30 from Florence, AL), 60 Dover (30 from the Brigham Quarry site, TN; 30 from the Thompson Hollow Quarry site, TN), and a single Mookaite chert sample from Australia used as a control.

Also included in the spreadsheet are spectral averages of each sample set from a single location.

I sheet is 10 spectra taken from a single Dover chert sample and 4 spectra from three color zones in the Mookaite sample.

All spectra were obtained using a Bio-Rad FTS-40 FTIR spectrometer in reflectance mode housed at the University of Memphis.
