In this example, we use Pyromat® data files that have been converted to standard text format [John G. Reynolds, Alan K. Burnham, and Thomas O. Mitchell, ''Kinetic analysis of California petroleum source rocks by programmed temperature pyrolysis'', Org. Geochem. Vol. 23, No. 2, pp. 109-120, 1995].
The files used in Case 1 can be downloaded as: monterey.zip . All included files are text files and should be extracted to a user data folder that is not a subfolder of C:\Program Files.
File Name Description
