  • It has been demonstrated that Li-7 can be created in low mass red giant stars, via the Cameron-Fowler mechanism, due to extra deep mixing and the associated "cool bottom processing" (CBP). Under certain conditions, this Li-7 creation can take the place of the Li-7 destruction normally expected. Note that such extra mixing on the red giant branch (RGB) has previously been invoked to explain the observed C-13 enhancements. This new Li-7 production can account for the recent discovery of… CONTINUE READING
