Michael P Posted July 25, 2021 Share Posted July 25, 2021 Hi, Thanks for you taking a look. I have a dataset that I'd like to really crank down on for mineral saturation indices. But when I highlight several samples in GSS and run SpecE8, none of them converge. With the resultant SpecE8 window that opens I can change/fiddle with Al3+ by setting it to kaolinite mineral phase at a nominal concentration (saw you do that in a youtube video). This actually works to produce a 'converging' result and I see the suite of minerals and their respeicve SI. 1) I don't know that it is ideal to force Al to a certain mineral phase. These are pore waters from forested volcanic soils, but still... 2) I only see how to make this change in the SINGLE SAMPLE that pops up in SPecE8. There does not seem to be a pre-emptive handling of this Al-preference before the launch from GSS. And so by this 'method' I would have to change/fiddle with Al for each of my 300+ samples. 3) Is there another culprit that might be a better solution to my non-convergence? I would attach a pic of my GSS line headers... to see if you would omit or change anything. Thank you! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
