Papers in press: Isotopic investigations of ion exchange in barite

Looking off the fantail

Two studies published by Jule Middleton documenting the rates, sensitivities, and barium-isotopic consequences of ion exchange in barite. The first paper investigated how fast and how much ion exchange affected the isotope composition of barium in barite–fluid systems. We did this by performing laboratory experiments under marine-relevant conditions. The main findings are that ion exchange…
