Hafnium Isotopes

Water mass circulation and weathering inputs in the Labrador Sea based on coupled hafnium-neodymium isotope compositions and rare earth element distributions

Filippova and co-authors (2017, see reference below) show distinct water mass signatures in the Labrador Sea revealed by combined dissolved hafnium (Hf) and neodymium (Nd) isotope compositions and REE distribution patterns along the AR7W transect in May 2013. The new data show that in a semi-enclosed basin such as the Labrador Sea, the radiogenic Hf […]

First combined distributions of dissolved Neodymium (Nd) – Hafnium (Hf) concentrations and isotope compositions from the Baltic Sea

The central Baltic Sea is a marginal brackish basin, in which anoxic bottom waters prevail either seasonally or permanently and which is surrounded by continental landmasses comprising a large variety of compositions and ages of rocks. This allows the investigation of water mass mixing using radiogenic isotope compositions of Nd and Hf, as well as […]
