Unravelling the evolution of continents using detrital zircons from modern rivers

Zhu, Ziyi


Detrital zircons collected from Earth's modern rivers provide the most representative samples to study the evolution of the continental crust on a global scale. Most of the eroded material in modern rivers has experienced long-time sediment-sediment recycling, and thus they contain detrital zircons from source rocks of diverse origins, including the crustal segments that are currently inaccessible by surface geology. Zircon is a common accessory mineral that retains the isotopic composition of...[Show more]
