Studies in the Area of Geoscience Reported from R. Sturm and Co-Researchers (A software tool to evaluate crystal types and morphological developments of accessory zircon)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Computer Weekly News -- New research on Science is the subject of a report. According to news reporting from Salzburg, Austria, by VerticalNews editors, the research stated, "Computer programs for an appropriate visualization of crystal types and morphological developments of accessory zircon are not available hitherto. Usually, typological computations are conducted by using simple calculation tools or spread-sheet programs."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research, "In practice, however, high numbers of data sets including information of numerous zircon populations have to be processed and stored. The paper describes the software ZIRCTYP, which is a macro-driven program within the Microsoft Access database management system. It allows the computation of zircon morphologies occurring in specific rock samples and their presentation in typology diagrams."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "In addition, morphological developments within a given zircon population are presented (1) statistically and (2) graphically as crystal sequences showing initial, intermediate, and final growth stages."
