Contents: Supplementary Materials

The supplementary materials are divided into two directories, APPENDIX and PHOTOMIC (links to directories to choose and copy files).

The APPENDIX directory contains linked and independent spreadsheets of Leg 176 igneous data. For detailed information on the spreadsheets, see "Appendix," p. 31, in the "Leg 176 Summary" chapter. For detailed information about the linked spreadsheets, see "Linked Spreadsheets," p. 8, in the "Explanatory Notes" chapter. These files were created in Microsoft Excel 5.0 (.XLS extension) and ASCII (.TXT extension).

The PHOTOMIC directory contains the individual photomicrographs, a photomicrograph log, a set of rulers, and axioscope and binocular scales. A readme file is included. These files were created in Microsoft Excel 5.0 (.XLS extension), Adobe Illustrator 6.0 (.AI extension), Canvas 3.5 (.CVS extension), and TIF format (.TIF).

The files can be copied to a local hard drive and opened in various applications. Some files are Macintosh application files.
