About this book

This review of the rapidly expanding field of Samarium - Neodymium isotopic studies in the earth sciences covers topics relating to planetary evolution, igneous petrology and geochemistry, mantle dynamics, and continental tectonics. In addition to a review of research, Neodymium Isotope Geochemistry describes its theoretical and empirical basis, presents new interpretations and models, and provides general background information in isotopic geochemistry. Textbook-style early chapters combined with chapters emphasizing applications and results yield a handbook of Neodymium Isotope Geochemistry which serves as a comprehensive introduction to the field. It will be invaluable to researchers, graduate and advanced undergraduate students in earth sciences, researchers from related fields, teachers of advanced geochemistry and petrology, and experts seeking a general review or a departure point for further research. Relevant research is critically reviewed and the results are placed in context within unifying general models for earth processes and structure.
