Oxygen Isotopes and Sampling of the Solar System

Ireland, Trevor; Nunes Avila, Janaina; Greenwood, R C; Hicks, Leon J; Bridges, John


Oxygen is the dominant element in our planetary system. It is therefore remarkable that it shows substantial isotopic diversity both in mass-dependent fractionation, because it is a light element, and in mass-independent fractionation, primarily associated with variation in abundance of 16O. On Earth, the primary variation in isotopic composition is related to temperature-dependent kinetic mass fractionation between hydrosphere and atmosphere. Meteorites provide samples of primitive bodies,...[Show more]
