Oxygen isotopes as tracers and stopwatches for rock-fluid interaction in the crust: New analytical and experimental developments

Scicchitano, Maria Rosa


Metamorphism is the dominant transformation mechanism of rocks in most of the Earth’s lithosphere and it is driven by variations in temperature, pressure, deformation and influx of chemically active fluids. Fluids play a crucial role in affecting many physical and chemical processes. It is therefore essential to unravel their nature and source(s) and the extent of their infiltration to fully understand crustal evolution. Oxygen isotopes are one of the most robust tools used to obtain such...[Show more]
