Strontium Isotopes


Strontium Isotopes
The 87Sr/86Sr Isotope Ratio is used to reveal the relationship of continental water influx into oceanic waters. Affected by rate of sea-floor spreading versus continental weathering plus meteoric influx into the sea. Particularly useful in dating Cenozoic sediment deposits.
