Developing a crustThe rate of continental crust formation and the nature of the processes involved are the subjects of much debate. The crux of the problem is reconciling the apparently contradictory and incomplete information from the igneous and sedimentary rock records. To help resolve this ambiguity, Kemp et al. analysed zircons from the Gondwana supercontinent using a series of isotopic clocks. The sequential measurement of U–Pb, oxygen and Lu–Hf isotopes on the same zircon grain reveals… CONTINUE READING
