# Thermodynamic data for minerals: a critical assessment

## Abstract

Earth scientists in search of thermodynamic data are faced with questions as to the quality and reliability of their finds. Analysis of the currently available thermodynamic data bases for minerals reveals discrepancies *of form* and of *contents*, both of which complicate the quality assessment. Formal differences render comparisons of properties among different data bases cumbersome at least. Where differences of content emerge from such a comparison, even the specialist is often unsure which data are better and how good these might be. Worse, even where a comparison between data bases shows substantial agreement, the user of the data cannot be sure of their quality, because many data-base entries are not independent.
