Extrusive Section Oceanic Crust 5 B 0.013             Boron composition of DSDP composites which represent Layer 2A of the oceanic crust. Smith et al. 1995
Extrusive Section Oceanic Crust 5 B 26           ppm Average B content of the upper 550m of altered crust which has been determined by integrating composites from DSDP hole 417A, 417D and 418A. Smith et al. 1995
Extrusive Section Oceanic Crust 55 Cs 0.0131           µg/g Average compositions of DSDP Leg 34 Basalts to compare with other Upper Crust alkali fluxes from other sites and sources given in Hart & Staudigel 1982. The ultimate goal in comparing and contrasting these alkali fluxes is to find whether Oceanic Crustal alteration processes are relevant sinks for alkalies input into the ocean by riverine processes. Hart & Staudigel 1982 Hart 1976
Extrusive Section Oceanic Crust   d11B 0.8             Boron isotopic compositions of Layer 2A composites, which happens to be similar to the range of values measured in dikes from Troodos ophiolite and basalts from DSDP Hole 504B. Smith et al. 1995
Extrusive Section Oceanic Crust 19 K 1064           µg/g Average compositions of DSDP Leg 34 Basalts to compare with other Upper Crust alkali fluxes from other sites and sources given in Hart & Staudigel 1982. The ultimate goal in comparing and contrasting these alkali fluxes is to find whether Oceanic Crustal alteration processes are relevant sinks for alkalies input into the ocean by riverine processes. Hart & Staudigel 1982 Hart 1976
Extrusive Section Oceanic Crust 37 Rb 1.02           µg/g Average compositions of DSDP Leg 34 Basalts to compare with other Upper Crust alkali fluxes from other sites and sources given in Hart & Staudigel 1982. The ultimate goal in comparing and contrasting these alkali fluxes is to find whether Oceanic Crustal alteration processes are relevant sinks for alkalies input into the ocean by riverine processes.
