Zinc isotope composition of the Earth and its behaviour during planetary accretion

Sossi, Paolo A; Nebel, Oliver; O'Neill, Hugh St. C; Moynier, Frédéric


The terrestrial planets are depleted in volatile elements with respect to chondritic meteorites, their possible building blocks. However, the timing, extent and origin of volatile depletion is debated. Zinc is a moderately volatile element (MVE), whose stable isotopic composition can distinguish when and where this depletion took place. Here, we report data for 40 ultramafic rocks comprising pristine upper mantle peridotites from the Balmuccia orogenic lherzolite massif and Archean komatiites...[Show more]
