Helium isotopes in sedimentary basins

  title={Helium isotopes in sedimentary basins},
  author={E. Ronald Oxburgh and R K O'nions and R. I. Hill},
Measurements of helium isotopes in the ground waters and natural gases of sedimentary basins reveal that some possess a major component of mantle-derived helium, apparently related to their mechanism of formation. Neogene basins formed by loading do not involve introduction of significant mantle helium, whereas those formed by extension do.
