"In this paper we examine the chemical composition results obtained on a collection of 18. dinosaur fossil bones from Spain studied using a portable x-ray fluorescence spectrometer. together with a reverse Monte Carlo numerical technique of data analysis. This approach is. applied to the hypothesis of arbitrarily rough surfaces in order to account for the influence of. the surface state of specimens on the chemical content evaluation. It is confirmed that the. chemical content of elements is essential for understanding the changes brought about by. diagenetic and taphonomic processes. However, for precise knowledge of what changes fossil. bones have undergone after animal life and burial, it is necessary to use a multi-technique. approach making use of other instruments like x-ray diffraction in order to describe accurately. the transformations undergone by the mineralogical and bioinorganic phases and the. properties of specific molecular groups."
