Abstract The past elevation of the land surface provides a unique constraint on the underlying lithospheric structure during mountain and plateau formation. Development of new paleoaltimetry techniques that can be applied to a wide variety of sample types is therefore of continuing importance. This study evaluates organic substrates that preserve the δ D ratio of surface waters as a new approach to reconstruct paleoaltimetry. We measured the hydrogen isotope composition of n -alkanes from… CONTINUE READING
