Run the installer and follow the on-screen instructions. Please note that the default isotope system is Generic, which will not support any special plotting features provided for each type of isotope system. There should now be uncertainty ellipses surrounding the data points on the plot. Freezing in the Evolution Matrix The math required to re-draw the matrix every time it moves can take a while. The purpose of this research is to determine the tectonic setting of granites of the studied area, based on their petrography, zircons feature and their ages.

More isotope systems will become available to the user in the future. Plots can be saved in.

Compiling a JAR from the source code: Introduction Topsoil nanual a desktop application and Java library that creates interactive data visualizations for geochronological data.

Isotope System – An option based on the type of radiometric analysis produced the data in question. If you are using a non-Windows machine and experience this problem, please contact us. In the short term, try generating the plot a few more times or toggling some of the plot settings.


Using Topsoil, a user is able to manually enter data, or import from delimited data formats, such mabual. Zooming out temporarily will make that process go faster.

How to Import Data When importing your data into Topsoil, you have a few options: The values will be in the table and editable as the format you specify, but Topsoil will convert them into 1-sigma absolute mmanual so that you can apply different formats to a plot. Amphibole-biotite granite is granular in texture and made up of amphibole, biotite, feldspar, accessory minerals Sphene, zircon, and apatite and secondary minerals sericite.

You can change the color of these ellipses at any time using the color picker next to the check box. Biotite-muscovite granite BMG is granular to granular porphyritic in texture, made up of biotite, muscovite, plagioclase, K-feldspar, quartz, accessory minerals zircon, opaques minerals and secondary minerals chlorite, sericite. If you ixoplot importing a. Although the plot will stop moving when either axis reaches zero, Topsoil thinks that the position of the plot is somewhere below zero.

This will download all of the necessary dependencies as well as collect all of the resource files. This data is stored in the form of tables, which can be organized and edited by the user.
