AbstractA new algorithm for detecting potential dispersal trains in geochemical data sampled from till is presented. This algorithm, referred to as the dispersal train identification algorithm (DTIA), is written in visual basic for applications (VBA) and can be run from any application that supports VBA. A Microsoft word document is supplied that contains the code and the program can be run from this document. This open file release contains a users manual, a previously published paper describing DTIA (Harris and Bonham-Carter, 2003) and a test dataset for experimentation purposes.
