Research Description

Fluxes of Radiogenic Isotopes to the Ocean in West Greenland
Continental fluxes of radiogenic isotopes produce a geochemical signature in the ocean of weathering conditions on land. There is a clear relationship between the extent of weathering and the isotopic fluxes of Sr, Nd and Pb isotopes. However, few studies have yet investigated the relative contributions of radiogenic isotopes from different weathering environments. The ultimate goal is to determine whether marine records which preserve the total weathering flux can be interpreted in terms of changing proportions of these environments as the ice sheet grew and retreated in the geologic past.
