               Chemical Gains and losses calculated assuming constant TiO2 and single precursor for ultramafic komatiitic flows
                (S98-4-136.5) and tholeiitic hyaloclastite (S97-9-569.5).

                Calculation done using the method of Maclean.

                Calculated gains and losses are approximate and calculated values do not equal weight % changes.

                The direction of change ie, positive (added) or negative (removed) is the most significant.

                Oxides represent anhydrous values.
