Growth of the Preserved Continental Crust: Integrated U-Pb, O, and Hf isotopic systematics of detrital zircons from Australia and Antarctica

Chen, Bei


When and how the continental crust was generated, and how the volume of the continental crust has changed with time, are fundamental questions in Earth Sciences. Various models for the growth of the continental crust have been proposed, but there is no consensus yet, highlighting the complexity of continental growth. In-situ analyses of U-Pb, O and Lu-Hf isotopes from detrital zircon grains from the world's major rivers can potentially capture the approximate timing of major formation of the...[Show more]
