Advection-Diffusion Controlled Lithium Isotopic Distribution in Contact Aureoles: A Case Study from the Florence County Pegmatites, Wisconsin
Stable isotopes are useful tracers of fluid-rock interactions in contact aureole settings. To date, only a few case studies have used Li isotopes to study fluid-rock interactions in contact aureole settings. These studies ...
Characterization of the regional, crustal, and global distribution and abundance of the heat producing elements and their geoneutrino flux
The amount and distribution of radiogenic power generation from the heat producing elements (HPE) U, Th, and K in the Earth is not well constrained. Compositional estimates of these elements vary by a factor of three in ...
Earth's Radiogenic Heat Production and the Composition of the Deep Continental Crust
Much of the continental crust, the 40+ km thick plates of rock that make up the outer shell of our planet, is inaccessible to us living on its surface. Thus its composition is a mystery. We lack the technology to sample ...
