Strontium stable isotope behaviour accompanying melting and magmatism in the earth - moon system

Abstract:

This thesis concerns the application of a new technique for measuring the stable isotopes of Sr, specifically pertaining to mass dependent fractionation in high temperature processes on the Earth and Moon. Processes such as mantle melting and differentiation on Earth and the formation of the Lunar Magma Ocean are investigated by the application of a double-spike TIMS method to terrestrial and lunar material to obtain high-precision 87Sr/86Sr, 88Sr/86
