Such covariation suggests a mixing of two endmember fluids at varying ratios--one being a more evolved fluid with elevated Sr isotope ratios and isotopically heavy sulphate, possibly derived from reworked porewater, and the other being a fluid bearing isotopically light sulphate and less radiogenic Sr isotope signature, possibly representing the original porewater (Maynard et al.
Progressive erosion of Pangaea highland areas during the Middle Triassic probably stripped off the low-ratio sedimentary cover and exposed older, more radiogenic rocks to weathering that produced material with higher [sup.
In addition, the fact that granites contain elevated concentrations of U and Th means that they are also enriched in radiogenic lead, especially when compared with radiogenic lead-depleted basalt and island arc volcanic rocks.
Tracking the radiogenic carbon content of dissolved organic matter would also be very useful, although significantly more expensive.
