Isotopic Composition of Strontium in a Variety of Rocks from Réunion Island

Abstract

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.
