Application of radiogenic isotopes in Geosciences: Overview and perspectives
MetadataShow full item record
Wider use of radiogenic isotopes in geosciences has been enabled by developments in mass spectrometry at the beginning of the 21st century. Nowadays, radiogenic isotope geochemistry forms an integrated part of geosciences in a range of applications, starting from formation of planetary systems, genesis, and the evolution of Earth's lithosphere and associated mineral and oil deposits, as well as environmental tracers. Two primary types of information are available from radiogenic isotopes studies: age determination and isotopic source tracing. In this chapter, the range of isotope systematics currently used in geosciences and their applications are reviewed, together with progress in analytical technologies. The chapter brings together internationally recognised researchers who have been at the forefront of analytical technologies in the field of geochemistry of radiogenic isotopes.

Nanogeochronology of discordant zircon measured by atom probe microscopy of Pb-enriched dislocation loopsPeterman, E.; Reddy, Steven; Saxey, David; Snoeyenbos, D.; Rickard, William; Fougerouse, Denis; Kylander-Clark, A. (2016)Isotopic discordance is a common feature in zircon that can lead to an erroneous age determination, and it is attributed to the mobilization and escape of radiogenic Pb during its post-crystallization geological evolution. ...
