Should we try and use field-based XRF scanning to help link lithologies onshore with those offshore?

Although not funded by BC, Sheffield has just bought a hand held XRF scanner. The possibility arises that this might be of use of for terrestrial parts of transects to help in linking lithologies with our cores on the shelf and the already Itrax-scanned cores further offshore. Get in touch with Mark Bateman (m.d.bateman@sheffield.ac.uk) if you can think of sensible avenues. Is it worth taking it on the cruises for onboard scanning of cores?
