Title: Application of Stable Oxygen and Carbon Isotope Techniques to Studies of Diagenesis: ABSTRACT

Author(s): R. Michael Lloyd

Article Type: Meeting abstract


Oxygen and carbon-isotope techniques are well established in classical paleotemperature work, in the fields of igneous and metamorphic petrology, and in certain phases of organic geochemistry. However, there is a wealth of fundamental data on the isotopic behavior of sedimentary rock-forming mineral systems (carbonates, silicates, sulfates, and their interaction with various fluids) that await systematic exploitation by geochemists interested in low-temperature diagenesis of sedimentary rocks. One example of specific isotopic studies involves early dolomitization.
