Rubidium and strontium concentrations and strontium isotopic compositions have been determined for 70 samples of basalt from 22 volcanoes in the Hawaiian Islands-Emperor Seamount volcanic chain. The mean Sr/Sr ratios for basalts of the tholeiitic suite range from 0.70316 to 0.70411 and have a mean value and standard deviation of 0.70369 ± 0.00028. Basalts of the alkalic suite show a range from 0.70290 to 0.70394 and have a mean value and standard deviation of 0.70344 ± 0.00026. In addition to… CONTINUE READING
