We use a high-resolution seawater Sr isotopic evolution curve for the last 100 m.y. in conjunction with modern riverine Sr flux measurements, and also geologic, tectonic and geochronological data, to make the case for a close relationship between seawater Sr isotopic composition and the India Asia continental collision. Using a simple seawater Sr budget model we begin by showing that the Sr flux associated with alteration of seafloor basalts is too small and does not have the right time… CONTINUE READING
