Halogens in seawater, marine sediments and the altered oceanic lithosphere

Kendrick, Mark


This chapter aims to provide a framework for understanding the distribution of halogens in the oceanic lithosphere. It reviews the concentration of F, Cl, Br and I in seawater, marine sediment pore waters, hydrothermal vent fluids, fluid inclusions from deeper in the crust, and the complementary solid-phase reservoirs of organic matter and minerals present in sediments and crustal rocks from varying depths. Seawater (3.4-3.5 wt. % salt) is depleted in F, weakly enriched in I and strongly...[Show more]
