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 ...
Origin of the anomalous sulfur isotope composition of the Rustenburg Layered Suite (Bushveld Complex), South Africa
The 2.06 Ga Bushveld Magmatic Province (BMP) hosts the largest platinum group element (PGE) reserve of the world that occurs mainly as sulfide-rich layers within the Rustenburg Layered Suite (RLS), and also in mineralized ...
The Redox History of the Earth's Mantle: Evidence from Ultramafic Lavas
In order to determine the evolution of the redox state of the mantle, the oxygen fugacities of sixteen mantle-derived komatiitic and picritic systems, ranging in age from 3.55 Ga to present day, were determined using the ...
