Boron metasomatism in the Alta stock contact aureole, Utah
The effects of fluid evolution and infiltration in the Alta stock contact aureole, Utah, were studied by evaluating chemical additions and depletions in igneous, replacement skarn, and carbonate whole-rock samples. Of the ...
Geochemistry of magnesian granulites in feldspathic lunar meteorites Allan Hills A81005 and Dhofar 309
Magnesian granulites in Allan Hills A81005 and Dhofar 309 may possess the geochemical signature of the Moon's Feldspathic Highlands Terrane (FHT). Previous work on Apollo granulites suggests the presence of a high Mg/Fe, ...
Petrogenesis of plutons and hypabyssal rocks of the Bering Strait region, Chukotka, Russia
Subduction of an oceanic plate beneath the Bering Strait region resulted in the formation of an extensive magmatic belt along the margin of the region during the Cretaceous. Plutons and gneiss domes of this age are broadly ...
Trace element geochemistry of basalts from the Oregon Cascade Range: Implications for magma generation and possible variations in the sub-arc mantle
Analyses of Oregon Cascades basalts reveal two groups of High Cascades (9-0 Ma) lavas: (1) "enriched" basalts with high Ba, Sr, Ba/Nb, and Ba/La, and (2) "depleted" basalts with flat rare earth element patterns and relatively ...
Oxygen isotope analysis of corals from the Gulf of California and Gulf of Panama: Application and implications for coral-based paleoclimate reconstruction
Oxygen isotope analyses of corals from the Gulf of California and Gulf of Panama are calibrated with environmental parameters. Uncertainty in the isotopic composition of sea water in the Gulf of California prohibits strong ...

Transfer of organic matter from surface waters to the sea floor: Fecal pellet flux in the Ross Sea
Moored sediment traps intercepted material for approximately one year in the southern Ross Sea, Antarctica. Fecal pellets >100 um in trap samples were classified according to morphology as tabular, ellipsoidal, or cylindrical. ...
