  • Life of Li Because lithium primarily exists in silicate minerals on continents, the variations of Li isotopes in marine sedimentary rocks reflect the degree of silicate weathering and formation of new sediments on the seafloor, which in turn are largely controlled by climate and tectonic forces over geologic time. By analyzing sedimentary cores from eight drill sites around the world's oceans, Misra and Froelich (p. 818, published online 26 January; see the cover; see the Perspective by Paytan… CONTINUE READING
