These values are used in conjuction with concentrations taken from the same elements in unfiltered sea water and then used in equations given in Li 1982 to determine mean oceanic residence time of particular elements.

Solar System 35 Br 11.8   2.242     18   The inconsistencies amongst vaious sources to produce similar Bromine abundances makes the aquisition of a valid average problematic. The lack of consistency on the part of Bromine abundances is mainly due to the differing views on hydrothermal transport of the meteorite parent bodies, thus leading to the analysis of Br abundances based on other meteorite classes that are volatile rich, but have not been hydrothermally altered. The Br, In and Cd ratios in C3's and E4's are used for their relative equivalence to solar system ratios, therein leading to mean Br abundances. Anders & Ebihara 1982
