Magnesium stable isotope composition of Earth's upper mantle

Handler, Monica R.; Baker, Joel A.; Schiller, Martin; Bennett, Victoria; Yaxley, Gregory

Description

The mantle is Earth's largest reservoir of Mg containing > 99% of Earth's Mg inventory. However, no consensus exists on the stable Mg isotope composition of the Earth's mantle or how variable it is and, in particular, whether the mantle has the same stable Mg isotope composition as chondrite meteorites. We have determined the Mg isotope composition of olivine from 22 mantle peridotites from eastern Australia, west Antarctica, Jordan, Yemen and southwest Greenland by pseudo-high-resolution...[Show more]
