Strontium-isotope measurements on Lower Cretaceous marine rocks derive from belemnite material sampled in ammonite-constrained basinal successions. A group of values with a narrow range across the Barremian/Aptian boundary does not allow the separation of the uppermost Barremian (Martelites sarasini ammonite zone) from the lower Aptian pro parte (Deshayesites Cited by: 1. The expanded sample of strontium isotopes from human dental enamel shows that 87 Sr/ 86 Sr values are more variable during the Copper Age, but the change is more pronounced in the Middle Copper Age than in the Early Copper Age. These results, along with recently published complementary research, indicate that the transition from the Late Cited by:

  1. Answer is 93, Neptunium. Since this is an alpha emission the atomic number of the daughter nucleus decreases by 2 while mass number decreases by 4 compared to parent atom. Since parent atom, Americium has atomic number as 95, the daughter atom should have 95 - 2 = 93 as atomic number and 4 = as the mass to the atomic number . Researchers demonstrate rare combination of electric and magnetic properties in strontium barium manganite 27 January Figure 1: Strontium barium manganite’s properties. Strontium isotope ratios have been determined on 74 anhydrite samples from seven borehole cores in the Polish Zechstein. Five of the borehole cores are located in the basin and isotope results from these samples show a nearly pure marine signal. Generalized gradient approximation (GGA) plus on-site Coulomb interaction corrections (GGA+U) method within the framework of density functional theory (DFT) is used to investigate the electronic structure of SrNiO3.

Most rocks carry a small amount of the element strontium (Sr). All elements have different forms, or isotopes, and the ratio of 87strontium and 86strontium isotopes varies according to local geology. Generally, older rocks have accumulated higher amounts of 87Sr in relation to 86Sr.

New lead isotope data are presented for some late Precambrian and early Paleozoic vein and massive sulfide deposits in the Arabian Shield.

Strontium found in these sources is composed of four isotopes: 84Sr, 86Sr, 87Sr, 88Sr; only 87Sr is a radiogenic isotope produced by the decay of 87Rb; Sr/86Sr reflect the 87Rb/ Sr ratios and age of the parent rocks.

The style of trace element enrichment recorded by the Aldan Shield lamproites is comparable with that of subduction-related magmatism.
