  • A preliminary study on ore-forming environments of Xianglushan-type iron
           deposit and the weathering mineralization of Emeishan basalt in Guizhou
           Province, China
    • Authors: Guofan Cheng; Youping Liu; Hansheng Long; Tao Cui; Ning Yu
      Abstract: Abstract Xianglushan-type iron deposits are one of the new types of iron deposits found in the Weining Area of Western Guizhou. The iron-bearing rock system is a paleo-weathered crustal sedimentary (or accumulating) stratum between the top of the Middle-Late Permian Emeishan basalt formation and the Late Permian Xuanwei formation. Iron ore is hosted in the Lower-Middle part of the rock system. In terms of the genesis of mineral deposit, this type of deposit should be a basalt paleo-weathering crustal redeposit type, very different from marine sedimentary iron deposits or continental weathering crust iron deposits. Based on field work and the analytical results of XRD Powder Diffraction, Electron Probe, Scanner Electron Microscope, etc., the geological setting of the ore-forming processes and the deposit features are illustrated in this paper. The ore-forming environment of the deposit and the Emeishan basalt weathering mineralization are also discussed in order to enhance the knowledge of the universality and diversity of mineralization of the Emeishan Large Igneous Province (ELIP), which may be a considerable reference to further research for ELIP metallogenic theories, and geological research for iron deposits in the paleo-weathering crust areas of the Emeishan basalt, Southwestern, China.

  • Role of hydro-geochemical functions on karst critical zone hydrology for
           sustainability of water resources and ecology in Southwest China
    • Authors: Xi Chen; Yimeng Sun; Richao Huang
      Abstract: Abstract Focusing on sustainability of water resources and ecology in the complex karst critical zone, we illustrated functions of the hydro-geochemical analysis on hydrology from the aspects of connection and interaction among hydrology–vegetation–soils/rock fractures along the karst subsurface profile. We reviewed isotopic and geochemical interpretations on tracing water sources for plant uptake, quantifying watershed outlet flow composition and residence times, and evaluating long-term evolution among climate–landscape–hydrology in the karst critical zone. In this paper, the application of the hydro-geochemical analysis on the above aspects in the karst areas of southwest China was summarized.

  • A hydrochemical approach to estimate mountain front recharge in an aquifer
           system in Tamilnadu, India
    • Abstract: Abstract Mountain-front recharge (MFR) is a process of recharging an aquifer by infiltration of surface flow from streams and adjacent basins in a mountain block and along a mountain front (MF). This is the first attempt in India to estimate MFR along the foothills of Courtallam using hydrogeochemistry and geostatistical tools. The estimation of MFR has been carried out by collecting groundwater samples along the foothills of Courtallam. Collected water samples were analyzed for major cations and anions using standard procedures. Hydrogeochemical facies show the existence of four water types in this region. Calcium-rich water derived from gneissic rock terrain indicates significant recharge from higher elevation. Log pCO2 and ionic strength of the samples were also calculated to identify the geochemical process. Majority of the collected samples have sodium-rich water and weak ionic strength, which indicate foothill recharge and low residence time. Silicate and carbonate weathering have an equal interplay along the foothills with a relatively large fraction of Mg from the MF. The spatial diagrams of three factors show that the southern part of the study area is dominated by both weathering and anthropogenic processes, whereas the northern part is dominated by both leaching and weathering processes. Thus, the dominant weathering process represented by the second factor indicates the large recharge process along the foothills.

  • Source and yearly distribution of PAHs in the snow from the Hailuogou
           glacier of Mountain Gongga, China
    • Authors: Chaoqi Yu; Meihan Li; Yinling Cao; Xian He; Hong Zhou; Tingting Zhang; Chongying Li
      Abstract: Abstract Snow samples were collected over a 3-year period from 2012 to 2014 at the Hailuogou glacier of Mountain Gongga (Mt. Gongga) and analyzed for 16 priority polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) using Gas Chromatography–Mass Spectrometry (GC–MS). The results show that total average levels of the 16 PAHs ranged from 452 to 290 ng·L−1 with a possible declining trend from 2012 to 2014. Distances between the sampling sites and the emission sources were estimated at typically less than 500 km. The results suggest that the major source of PAHs was from coal combustion, while contributions from automobile exhaust played an important role in more recent years. This finding was in agreement with the characteristics of presence of local industry, residence, and recent development of tourism of the surrounding areas.

  • Re–Os geochronology of the Cambrian stage-2 and -3 boundary in Zhijin
           County, Guizhou Province, China
    • Authors: Shuaichao Wei; Yong Fu; Houpeng Liang; Zhihua Ge; Wenxi Zhou; Guangzhe Wang
      Abstract: Abstract The black shale series that formed in the Ediacaran–Cambrian transition are important stratigraphic records of the co-evolution of the paleo-ocean, -climate, and -biology. In this study, we measured Re–Os isotopic compositions of the black shale in the Niutitang Formation from the Gezhongwu section in Zhijin, Guizhou Province. The samples had high Re and Os contents, with Re ranging from 21.27 to 312.78 ng/g and Os ranging from 0.455 to 7.789 ng/g. The Re–Os isotope isochron age of 522.9 ± 8.6 Ma implies deposition of the Niutitang black shale predated the Chengjiang Fauna, providing an age constraint for the expansion of oceanic anoxia in the study area. The initial 187Os/188Os ratio of 0.826 ± 0.026 indicates that enhanced continental weathering might have triggered the expansion of the oceanic anoxia.

  • Zircon SHRIMP U–Pb age of Late Jurassic OIB-type volcanic rocks from the
           Tethyan Himalaya: constraints on the initial activity time of the
           Kerguelen mantle plume
    • Authors: Yuruo Shi; Chenyang Hou; J. Lawford Anderson; Tianshui Yang; Yiming Ma; Weiwei Bian; Jingjie Jin
      Abstract: Abstract This work presents zircon U–Pb age and whole-rock geochemical data for the volcanic rocks from the Lakang Formation in the southeastern Tethyan Himalaya and represents the initial activity of the Kerguelen mantle plume. SHRIMP U–Pb dating of zircons from the volcanic rocks yielded a 206Pb/238U age of 147 ± 2 Ma that reflects the time of Late Jurassic magmatism. Whole rock analyses of major and trace elements show that the volcanic rocks are characterized by high content of TiO2 (2.62 wt%–4.25 wt%) and P2O5 (0.38 wt%–0.68 wt%), highly fractionated in LREE/HREE [(La/Yb)N = 5.35–8.31] with no obvious anomaly of Eu, and HFSE enrichment with no obvious anomaly of Nb and Ta, which are similar to those of ocean island basalts and tholeiitic basaltic andesites indicating a mantle plume origin. The Kerguelen mantle plume produced a massive amount of magmatic rocks from Early Cretaceous to the present, which widely dispersed from their original localities of emplacement due to the changing motions of the Antarctic, Australian, and Indian plates. However, our new geochronological and geochemical results indicate that the Kerguelen mantle plume started from the Late Jurassic. Furthermore, we suggest that the Kerguelen mantle plume may played a significant role in the breakup of eastern Gondwanaland according to the available geochronological, geochemical and paleomagnetic data.

  • The importance of non-carbonate mineral weathering as a soil formation
           mechanism within a karst weathering profile in the SPECTRA Critical Zone
           Observatory, Guizhou Province, China
    • Authors: Oliver W. Moore; Heather L. Buss; Sophie M. Green; Man Liu; Zhaoliang Song
      Abstract: Abstract Soil degradation, including rocky desertification, of the karst regions in China is severe. Karst landscapes are especially sensitive to soil degradation as carbonate rocks are nutrient-poor and easily eroded. Understanding the balance between soil formation and soil erosion is critical for long-term soil sustainability, yet little is known about the initial soil forming processes on karst terrain. Herein we examine the initial weathering processes of several types of carbonate bedrock containing varying amounts of non-carbonate minerals in the SPECTRA Critical Zone Observatory, Guizhou Province, Southwest China. We compared the weathering mechanisms of the bedrock to the mass transfer of mineral nutrients in a soil profile developed on these rocks and found that soil formation and nutrient contents are strongly dependent upon the weathering of interbedded layers of more silicate-rich bedrock (marls). Atmospheric inputs from dust were also detected.

  • Chemical characteristics of rainwater in karst rural areas, Guizhou
           Province, Southwest China
    • Authors: Pin Lü; Guilin Han; Qixin Wu
      Abstract: Abstract The chemical composition of rainwater has been studied in a karst rural area from September 2012 to August 2013 in Guizhou Province, Southwest China. The results indicated that the VWM value of pH was 5.4, varied from 4.6 to 6.9. Ca2+ and NH4 + were the major cations, and SO4 2− was the dominant anion. Neutralization factors show that the acid was mainly neutralized by Ca2+, NH4 + and Mg2+. Investigations of correlation coefficients and enrichment factors revealed that Ca2+ and Mg2+ were mainly crust origins, and NH4 + was from agriculture and livestock manure. SO4 2− and NO3 − were mainly from anthropogenic sources.

  • Constraints on sedimentary ages of the Chuanlinggou Formation in the Ming
           Tombs, Beijing, North China Craton: LA-ICP-MS and SHRIMP U–Pb dating of
           detrital zircons
    • Authors: Jing Ding; Yuruo Shi; Alfred Kröner; J. Lawford Anderson
      Abstract: Abstract Detrital zircons in five sedimentary samples, MC1 to MC5, from the bottom of the Chuanlinggou Formation in the Ming Tombs District, Beijing, were dated with the LA-ICP-MS and SHRIMP U–Pb methods. Age spectra of the five samples show a major peak at 2500 Ma and a secondary peak at 2000 Ma, suggesting their provenances were mainly from the crystalline basement of the North China Craton and the Trans-North China Orogen. The youngest zircon has an age of 1673 ± 44 Ma, indicating that the Chuanlinggou Formation was deposited after this age. From sample MC4 to MC5, lithology changed from a clastic rock (fine-grained sandstone) to a carbonate rock (fine-grained dolomite), suggesting that the depositional basin became progressively deeper. The age spectrum of sample MC5 shows a major peak at 2500 Ma and a secondary peak at 2000 Ma. Sample MC4, which is stratigraphically lower than sample MC5, only had one peak at 2500 Ma. We conclude that there was a transgressive event when sediments represented by MC5 was deposited, and seawater carried ca. 2000 Ma clastic materials to the basin where the Chuanlinggou Formation was deposited, leading to the addition of ca. 2000 Ma detritus. Our research indicates that the source area for the sediments became more extensive with time. We conclude that the Chuanlinggou Formation in the Ming Tombs District was deposited in a low-energy mud flat sedimentary environment in the inter-supra tidal zone because it is mainly composed of silty mudstone and fine-grained sandstone with relatively simple sedimentary structures.

  • Timing and structural controls on skarn-type and vein-type mineralization
           at the Xitian tin-polymetallic deposit, Hunan Province, SE China
    • Authors: Miao He; Quanlin Hou; Qing Liu; Jiheng Zhang; Jinfeng Sun; Shichong Wu; Haofeng Zhu
      Abstract: Abstract Xitian tin-polymetallic deposit, located in the eastern Hunan Province, SE China, hosts quartz vein and skarn in the contact zone between carbonate and two stages granites. Critical geodynamic questions for South China are whether different types of mineralization form in the same time and how the magmatism–tectonic system controls the ore-forming process. Based on the distribution of the orebodies, six cassiterite samples from different types of mineralization are collected for dating. In-situ LA-MC-ICP-MS U–Pb isotopic data yielded concordia low intercept ages between 154 and 157 Ma, indicating that different types of mineralization belong to the same magmatism–mineralization system. Coupled with the study of the kinematic indicators, it suggests that the structural control of the wall rocks constrain the types of mineralization. These results provide further evidence of a close temporal link between the structure and the tin-polymetallic mineralization in Xitian deposit. Considering the structure in the district, granite dome plays an important role in the ore-forming process. The age and structural signatures in Xitian deposit are the response to the subduction of Pacific Plate.

  • Effects of organic mineral fertiliser on heavy metal migration and
           potential carbon sink in soils in a karst region
    • Authors: Ping Chen; Yulong Ruan; Shijie Wang; Xiuming Liu; Bin Lian
      Abstract: Abstract Heavy metal pollution in karst mountainous area of Guizhou has spread due to the long-term exploitation of mineral resources and the improper disposal of environmentally hazardous waste. Heavy metals are characterised by non-degradation, strong toxicity, and constant accumulation, posing a grave threat to karst mountain fragile soil ecosystem. To reduce the harm caused by heavy metal pollution and damage to agricultural products, research was undertaken on the basis of previous work by simulating pot experiments on pak choi cabbage (Brassica rapa chinensis) planted in Cd-contaminated soil: different amounts of organic mineral fertilisers (OMF) compared with chemical fertiliser (CF) were used and by detecting the amount of heavy metal in the mature vegetable, a better fertilisation strategy was developed. The results showed that the Cd content in vegetables grown with CF was 23.70 mg/kg, while that of vegetables grown with OMF and bacterial inoculant was the lowest at 15.13 mg/kg. This suggests that the use of OMF and microbes in karst areas not only promotes plant growth but also hinders plant absorption of heavy metal ions in the soil. In addition, through the collection of pot leachate, the detection of water chemistry characteristics, and the calculation of the calcite saturation index, it was found that the OMF method also induces certain carbon sink effects. The results provide a new way in which rationalise the use of OMFs in karst areas to alleviate soil heavy metal pollution and increase soil carbon sequestration.

  • Characteristics of CO 2 in unsaturated zone (~90 m) of loess
           tableland, Northwest China
    • Authors: Chao Song; Guilin Han; Yingchun Shi; Congqiang Liu; Pan Wang
      Abstract: Abstract In order to observe CO2 characteristics in the unsaturated zone of loess tableland and further understand the carbon cycle, a series of tubes for gas monitoring and sampling were installed in an approximately 90-m deep Qiushe loess section of Lingtai County, Northwestern China. The results show that the concentration of CO2 was higher in loess than in the atmosphere, reaching a maximum of 6970 μmol·mol−1. CO2 concentrations in loess were higher in summer than in winter. The CO2 in loess was related to organic carbon decomposed by microbes, and to the CaCO3–H2O–CO2 system in the interface between the saturated and unsaturated zones.

  • Behavior of rare earth elements in granitic profiles, eastern Tibetan
           Plateau, China
    • Authors: Lifeng Cui; Zhiqi Zhao; Congqiang Liu; Sheng Xu; Taoze Liu; Chenglong Tu; Hu Ding
      Abstract: Abstract Rare earth elements (REEs) can record geologic and geochemical processes. We studied two granitic regolith profiles from different climatic zones in eastern Tibetan Plateau and found that (1) ΣREEs ranged from 119.65 to 275.33 mg/kg in profile ND and 5.11–474.55 mg/kg in profile GTC, with average values of 205.79 and 161 mg/kg, respectively. ΣREEs was higher in accumulation horizon and semi-regolith; (2) Influenced by climate, the fractionation of light and heavy REEs (LREEs and HREEs) varied during weathering. The ratio of LREEs/HREEs in pedosphere was higher than semi-regolith in tropical profile; (3) A negative Eu anomaly in both profiles was the result of bedrock weathering. A positive Ce anomaly was observed in all layers of profile ND, and only in the upper 100 cm of profile GTC. This indicates that redox conditions along the regolith profile varied considerably with climate. (4) Normalized by chondrite, LREEs accumulated much more than HREEs; REE distribution curves were right-leaning with a V-type Eu anomaly in both profiles.

  • Determination of brominated diphenyl ethers in atmospheric particulate
           matter using selective pressurized liquid extraction and gas
           chromatography–mass spectrometry with a negative chemical ionization
    • Authors: Qian Zhang; Yongxiao Wang; Guilin Han; Tao Liang
      Abstract: Abstract This study describes the development and validation of a sensitive and reliable method for determination of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) in atmospheric particulate matter using selective pressurized liquid extraction (SPLE) and gas chromatography–mass spectrometry with a negative chemical ionization (GC-NCI-MS). Extraction and clean-up were performed using PLE with 2 g florisil and 3 g silica placed in the extraction cells. Under optimal conditions, 14 PBDEs were extracted at 70 °C using hexane/dichloromethane (50:50, v/v) as solvent. Validation of SPLE returned excellent recoveries for most analytes, with relative standard deviations mostly below 20%. Method detection limits ranged from 0.13 to 15.38 ng·mL−1 for the GC-MS analyses. The method was successfully applied to atmospheric particulate matter of Beijing, where analytes were detected in the range of 182.79 to 468.99 pg·m−3.

  • Test the topographic steady state in an active mountain belt
    • Authors: Kai Deng; Shouye Yang
      Abstract: Abstract Landscape evolution is the window to the link between deep earth and surface processes. One of the key issues in landscape evolution is to characterize the topographic steady state of mountain belts. The Taiwan mountain belt is an extraordinary case due to its extremely high uplift and denudation rates. The uplift of Taiwan Island is caused by the oblique collision between the Luzon Arc and the East Asian continent. In this case, the mountain building process in the north always occurs earlier than that in the south, which causes the spatial distribution of steady-state regions. The East Central Range receives much research attention with the presence of river basins that mainly distribute along the trajectory of the collision propagation. Normally, based on analyses of geomorphic parameters, the whole Central Range, or at least part of it, should be at a topographic steady state. However, the balance between uplift rates and denudation rates that exist in these regions is seldomly tested. In this contribution, we make a comprehensive literature review on the uplift and denudation rates derived from various approaches, including sediment yields, in-situ cosmogenic nuclide 10Be, incision of river channels, thermochronology, and GPS observations. This literature review reveals that the topographic steady state may prevail in the northern and middle parts of the East Central Range. However, an obvious inconsistency in denudation rates calculated by different methods prevents us from better constraining the topographic steady state in some regions of this mountain range.

  • Microaerobic iron oxidation and carbon assimilation and associated
           microbial community in paddy soil
    • Authors: Yating Chen; Xiaomin Li; Tongxu Liu; Fangbai Li
      Abstract: Abstract Iron oxidation is a prevalent and important biogeochemical process in paddy soil, but little is known about whether and how microbially mediated iron oxidation is coupled with carbon assimilation, particularly under microaerobic conditions. Here, we investigated kinetics of CO2 assimilation and Fe(II) oxidation in an incubation experiment with paddy soil under suboxic conditions, and profiled the associated microbial community using DNA-stable isotope probing and 16S rRNA gene-based sequencing. The results showed that CO2 assimilation and Fe(II) oxidation in the gradient tubes were predominantly mediated by the microbes enriched in the paddy soil, primarily Azospirillum and Magnetospirillum, as their relative abundances were higher in the 13C heavy fractions compared to 12C heavy fractions. This study provided direct evidence of chemoautotrophic microaerophiles linking iron oxidation and carbon assimilation at the oxic–anoxic interface in the paddy soil ecosystem.

  • Geochemical constraints on the tectonic setting of the Sonakhan Greenstone
           Belt, Bastar Craton, Central India
    • Authors: S. D. Deshmukh; K. R. Hari; P. Diwan; M. P. Manu Prasanth
      Abstract: Abstract The Neo-Archean Sonakhan Greenstone Belt (SGB) located in the north-eastern fringes of Bastar craton, Central India, is dominated by Basalts, Andesites, Dacites and Rhyolites association. Partial melting modeling on the SGB metabasalts indicates that these rocks were derived by 20% melting of spinel peridotite. Fractional crystallisation modeling with REE reveal that the most evolved samples represent the product of fractional crystallization of least evolved magma with 35% plagioclase, 35% clinopyroxene, 20% olivine, 5% magnetite and 5% ilmenite as fractionating minerals with 40% remaining magma. Depletion of HFSE with reference to the LILE and LREE/HFSE ratios and Nb, Zr anomalies in the multi-element diagram of the mafic rocks of SGB indicate Island arc magmatic setting. The enriched Th/Yb values further substantiate that the mantle arrays were modified by subduction-related fluids or melts. The general conclusions drawn indicate that the metabasalts from the SGB were formed as a result of subduction of an intraoceanic lithosphere in a fore-arc suprasubduction zone environment.

  • Soil organic carbon dynamics study bias deduced from isotopic
           fractionation in corn plant
    • Authors: Chenglong Tu; Congqiang Liu; Xiaohui Lu; Lifeng Cui; Jiayin Du
      Abstract: Abstract Carbon stable isotope techniques were extensively employed to trace the dynamics of soil organic carbon (SOC) across a land-use change involving a shift to vegetation with different photosynthetic pathways. Based on the isotopic mass balance equation, relative contributions of new versus old SOC, and SOC turnover rate in corn fields were evaluated world-wide. However, most previous research had not analyzed corn debris left in the field, instead using an average corn plant δ 13C value or a measured value to calculate the proportion of corn-derived SOC, either of which could bias results. This paper carried out a detailed analysis of isotopic fractionation in corn plants and deduced the maximum possible bias of SOC dynamics study. The results show approximately 3‰ isotopic fractionation from top to bottom of the corn leaf. The 13C enrichment sequence in corn plant was tassel > stalk or cob > root > leaves. Individual parts accounting for the total dry mass of corn returned distinct values. Consequently, the average δ 13C value of corn does not represent the actual isotopic composition of corn debris. Furthermore, we deduced that the greater the fractionation in corn plant, the greater the possible bias. To alleviate bias of SOC dynamics study, we suggest two measures: analyze isotopic compositions and proportions of each part of the corn and determine which parts of the corn plant are left in the field and incorporated into SOC.

  • The oxygen isotopic composition of phosphate as an effective tracer for
           phosphate sources in Hongfeng Lake
    • Authors: Yongxue Ji; Jingan Chen; Runyu Zhang; Yong Liu; Jingfu Wang
      Abstract: Abstract In order to characterize the oxygen isotopic composition of internal phosphate and explore the possibility of using these data to identify phosphate sources, we measured oxygen isotopic compositions of phosphate (δ18Op) in sediment pore water in Hongfeng Lake, a typical deep-water lake in a mountainous area. These data, in combination with δ18Op in surface water samples and water column samples, were successfully used to identify phosphate sources. The δ18Op value of sediment pore water ranged from 15.2‰ to 15.8‰, with an average value of 15.5‰—the δ18Op value of internal phosphate. The δ18Op values decreased gradually through the water column from 19.4‰ in surface water to 16.4‰ in deeper water, implying that internal phosphate had more negative δ18Op values than external phosphate. This finding was substantiated by horizontal variations in δ18OP values, which decreased with increasing distance from inflowing rivers. All collected evidence suggests that external and internal phosphate have distinctly different isotopic signatures and that these signatures have not been considerably altered by biological mediation in Hongfeng Lake. Therefore, δ18OP can be used to distinguish phosphate sources. A two-endmember mixing model showed that internal phosphate had an average contribution of 40%, highlighting the influence of internal phosphorus loading on aqueous phosphate and eutrophication. This study illustrates the need to reduce the internal phosphorus load from sediment and provides guidance for nutrient management and in-lake restoration treatment in Hongfeng Lake. The data presented here are limited, but serve to highlight the great potential of δ18Op as an effective tracer for identifying phosphate sources. Systematic investigations of the oxygen isotopic compositions of external phosphate, internal phosphate, and phosphate through the water column, in combination with in-lake P biogeochemical cycle study, would be desirable in further research.

  • Big difference in 87 Sr/ 86 Sr ratios of basalt and basin water: higher 87
           Sr/ 86 Sr ratios in plagioclase
    • Authors: Laifeng Li; Gaojun Li
      Abstract: Abstract We analyzed the 87Sr/86Sr ratios of basaltic rocks and basin water in Xuyi, China, and found a big difference, which may challenge conventional wisdom on the contribution of basalt weathering in end-member analysis. Results of an in-house weathering experiment suggest that rainwater and dust are not responsible for the difference. By isolating the major minerals in basalt, we found that plagioclase has much higher 87Sr/86Sr ratios than bulk basalt and basin water, which might explain the difference in 87Sr/86Sr ratios of basalt and basin water. We infer that low-temperature hydrothermal alteration increased the 87Sr/86Sr ratios of plagioclase. Future analyses of end-member contribution in a mixed-rock basin should take into account that basin water and plagioclase have higher 87Sr/86Sr ratios than basaltic rocks.
