Full Description see below:

WinRock is a petrology / geochemistry and classification program for use with mineralogical data.

WinRock uses the International Union of Geological Sciences recommendations for igneous rock classification. Each diagram contains separate fields corresponding to individual rock types with field definitions listed in a separate table.

WinRock uses modal mineralogy and geochemical data. Simply click on the toolbar to plot data.

Take WinRock for a test drive to see just hwo useful it can actually be for you!

WinRock key features:

  • Built in Spreadsheet:

  • Petrology diagrams, including harker, ternary and spider plot diagrams are included
  • A number of geochemical classification diagrams, including, TAS plutonic and volcanic, Jensen Cation and tectonic classification plots are available.
  • CIPW Norms:
  • Standard CIPW Norms for normal rocks can be calculated. Alkali norm for alkali and carbonatite rocks can be calculated
  • Graph Manipulation:
  • Many options are available for plotting data. WinRock will plot general purpose ternary, xy, log-log, log-linear and diamond graphs. A choice of symbols, labels and graph title are available to customise the graph. Labels can be placed on any number of data points. Choose colors and symbols. On screen control relates each highlighted data point to a set of data listed in a table. Copy graphs to the clipboard or save as bitmap files.
