Chemical analysis by laser-ablation ICP-MS can determine a large number of trace elements with a precision approaching traditional whole-rock analysis, but on a scale approaching that achieved by the electron microprobe. These characteristics make it a particularly attractive method for the analysis of volcanic glasses, but at present little is known about systematic errors, especially those from matrix effects. Here we investigate the precision and accuracy of LA-ICP-MS analysis of basaltic...[Show more]
