This specialized module allows generating n-dimensional spidergrams for comparing abundance of rare earth elements (REE)
or multi-elements of an analyzed rock sample normalized to their abundance in type-rocks (i.e., known reference rocks).
Concentrations are expected as parts per million (ppm) of the element, including P, K, and Ti.
Aabel is distributed with a built-in library of 30 type-rocks plot definitions.
In addition, instructions are provided for building and applying a user-defined library.
If a "double normalized" graph is required, using the feature is as simple as checking a checkbox.
In addition to traditional spidergrams, the module in Aabel NG2, v5 provides ability for generating group-based n-dimensional diagrams, providing (i) flexibility for exploratory visualization of spidergrams,
and (ii) feasibility for comparing different groups of spidergrams from large datasets.
