THE island of Réunion is situated some 375 miles to the east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. The isotopic composition of strontium (Table 1) has been determined in a suite of rocks ranging from basalts to quartz-bearing syenites. The investigation was undertaken to see whether or not variations in the isotopic composition of strontium were present in a wide range of rock types situated in an oceanic environment.
