Pb-210-Ra-226 disequilibria in volcanic rocks

Abstract:

Isotopes of the U-decay series, such as 238U-230Th-226Ra, have been used successfully to study timescales of magmatic processes. This study provides an overview of a shorter lived isotope pair, 210Pb-226Ra, which allows study of processes occuring during a crucial time window for magma ascent and eruption. 210Pb is fractionated from its great-grandparent 226Ra by both Pb-Ra fractionation between crystal and melt and via its intermediate parent 222Rn during degassing. 210Pb-226Ra activity rati...
