On the other hand, the initial 87 Sr/ 86 Sr ratios of granodiorite and granite plutons in the batholiths, which underlie and border the greenstone belts, vary from 0.7023 to 0.7044. The strontium isotope data indicate that the deep-seated gold skarns formed predominantly from fluids which evolved from or interacted with anatectic magmas in the ...

Periodic Table--Strontium. The alkali earth metal strontium has four stable, naturally occurring isotopes 84 Sr (0.56%), 86 Sr (9.86%), 81 Sr (7.0%) and 88 Sr (82.58%). Only 87 Sr is radiogenic it is produced by decay from the radioactive alkali metal 87 Rb, which has a half-life of 48,800,000 years. Thus, there are two sources of 87 Sr in any material that formed during primordial nucleo ...

isotope compositions in plants collected from the major geological substrates of southwestern South Africa (shales, sandstones, granites and recent marine-derived sands), ranging in age from pre-Cambrian to Quaternary (Figure 1). We were thus able to characterise isotope ratios of bioavailable Sr and Pb for each substrate. Our work expands on

Nd And Sr Isotope Study Of Hydrothermally Altered Granite

The mineralizing porphyry stock has a lower 87 Sr/ 86 Sr ratios (0.708) and a higher epsilon Nd (-6) than the Precambrian granite wall rock (0.782, -11). The 87 Sr/ 86 Sr ratios of the altered wall rock decrease regularly from 0.782 to 0.715 from the propylitic alteration zone to the stock contact, indicating that material flow was primarily ...


Geographical Patterns In Biologically Available Strontium

Sep 08, 2005 As described below, the geology of southern Germany is excellent for Sr isotope analysis of skeletons because the upland areas, underlain by granites (old rocks with high Rb/Sr), exhibit substantially higher 87 Sr/ 86 Sr values than the sedimentary lowlands in which carbonates having low Rb/Sr ratios are predominant.



The alkali earth metal Strontium (Sr) has four stable, naturally occurring isotopes 84 Sr (0.56%), 86 Sr (9.86%), 87 Sr (7.0%) and 88 Sr (82.58%). Only 87 Sr is radiogenic it is produced by decay from the radioactive alkali metal 87 Rb, which has a half-life of 4.88 10 10 years. Thus, there are two sources of 87 Sr in any material that formed during primordial nucleo-synthesis along with ...

Highly Evolved Juvenile Granites With Tetrad Ree Patterns

The emplacement ages are constrained at 1304 Ma for the Woduhe and 1225 Ma for the Baerzhe granites by RbSr and SmNd isotope analyses. Both granites are also characterized by low but imprecise initial 87Sr/86Sr ratios of about 0.703. The NdSr isotope data argue for their generation by melting of dominantly juvenile mantle component ...

The utility of the rubidium-strontium isotope system results from the fact that different minerals in a given geologic setting can have distinctly different 87 Sr/ 86 Sr as a consequence of different ages, original Rb/Sr values and the initial 87 Sr/ 86 Sr. For example, consider the case of a simple igneous rock such as a granite that contains several major Sr-bearing minerals including plagioclase feldspar, K

Sr Isotope Evolution During Chemical Weathering Of

The Sr isotopic systematics in the weathering profiles of biotite granite and granite porphyry in southern Jiangxi Province were investigated. The results showed that during the chemical weathering of granites, remarked fractionation occurred between Rb and Sr. During the early stages of chemical weathering of granites, the released Sr/Si and Sr/Ca ratios are larger than those of the parent rocks, and the

Oxygen hydrogen and strontium isotope

Oxygen Hydrogen And Strontium Isotope

Nov 03, 2011 Oxygen isotope data are very useful in determining the source rocks of granitic magmas, particularly when used in combination with Sr, Pb, and Nd isotope studies. For example, unusually high 18 O values in magmas ( 18 O 8) require the involvement of some precursor parent material that at some time in the past resided on or near the Earths surface, either as sedimentary rocks or as ...

Oct 17, 2021 High Sr/Y granites and ordinary granites have similar SiO 2 variation ranges, but high Sr/Y granites have coupled high (La/Yb) N, (Dy/Yb) N, Sr/Y and Nb/Ta ratios, while ordinary granites have low ratios of these. Combined with isotopic results, these differences indicate that the early Cretaceous high Sr/Y granites in the Dabie Mountains were derived from partial melting of

Strontium An Overview Sciencedirect Topics

Strontium is a naturally occurring element found in rocks, soil, dust, coal, and oil. Naturally occurring strontium is not radioactive and is referred to as stable strontium. Stable strontium in the environment exists in four stable isotopes, 84 Sr (read as strontium 84), 86 Sr, 87 Sr, and 88 Sr. Twelve other unstable isotopes are known to exist.

Strontium, an alkali earth metal, is present in all rocks. The 87Sry86Sr ratio of bedrock is a function of the initial 87Rby86Sr ratio and the age of the rock. Strontium-87 is derived from the radioactive decay of Rubidi-um-87 (t1/2 548.8 Ga). Rocks that are older or have higher initial concentrations of 87Rb, such as granites, have higher ...

Quadrupole-based ICP-mass spectrometry (ICP-QMS) was used for the determination of 87 Sr/ 86 Sr isotope ratios in digests of rock samples originating from two magmatic silicate rock formations of the Vosges (the Kagenfels granite and the Nideck rhyolite). The rock formations studied are geographically close to one another and, overall, they show a similar chemical composition.

Jul 26, 2012 There are four natural isotopes of Sr, 3 non-radiogenic (84 Sr, 86 Sr, and 88 Sr) and 1 radiogenic, the product of radioactive decay. The radiogenic isotope, 87 Sr, is formed through the -decay of 87 Rb, which has a half-life of 48.8 10 9 years. By convention, measured Sr isotope ratios are reported as 87 Sr/ 86 Sr and calculated as

Jul 26, 2021 In this study, we address this issue through a geochemical approach that combines isotopic data from iron, strontium, and neodymium. Whereas Sr and Nd give information on the source of the magmas, the isotopes of Fe will remain largely unfractionated if the granites result simply from melting the crust but fractionate significantly during FC.
