The behaviour of magnesium and its isotopes during glacial weathering in an ancient shield terrain in West Greenland

Abstract:

The magnesium (Mg) isotope composition of rivers is sensitive to changes in the balance of primary mineral dissolution and secondary mineral formation. As these processes are regulated by climate then changes to the Earth's climate system, such as the onset of glaciation, could potentially alter the isotopic behaviour of Mg in rivers. To investigate how Mg isotopes behave during glacial weathering, we have determined the Mg concentration and Mg isotope ratio for the dissolved, suspended and b...
