Description Usage Format Author(s) References

Description

A list containing 8 XRPD measurements (Cu K-alpha radiation) of synthetic mixtures that can be used to assess accuracy of quantitative analysis from the fps() and afps() functions. The mixtures contain various amounts of quartz (QUARTZ standard in of the rockjock library), K-feldspar (ORDERED_MICROCLINE), plagioclase (LABRADORITE), kaolinite (KAOLINITE_DRY_BRANCH), dioctahedral smectite (MONTMORILLIONITE_WYO), illite (ILLITE_1M_RM30) and corundum (CORUNDUM).
