Silicon isotopes in lunar rocks: Implications for the Moon's formation and the early history of the Earth

Abstract:

Silicon isotopic data from a range of lunar samples are presented to assess the degree of heterogeneity of the lunar mantle and its similarity to bulk silicate Earth (BSE). Multi-collector inductively-coupled-plasma mass spectrometry (MC-ICPMS) was used to analyse 24 samples, including both high and low-Ti basalts, as well as Highland anorthosites and picritic glasses, covering all the Apollo sample return missions. No systematic δ 30Si differences are found between any of the bulk sample lit...
