  • Carbon-bearing phases in shock-induced melt zones of the Elga meteorite
    • Authors: N. R. Khisina; S. N. Teplyakova; R. Wirth; V. G. Senin; A. A. Averin; A. A. Shiryaev
      Pages: 317 - 329
      Abstract: The mineralogy and texture of shock-induced melt veinlets and melt pockets in silicate inclusions in the Elga IIE iron meteorite have been studied by reflected-light optical microscopy, EMPA, SEM, Raman spectroscopy and TEM. The results suggest that Elga experienced two discrete impact events. The earlier event involved the collision of a metallic projectile with a silicate target and resulted in partial melting and recrystallization of the silicate material, forming schreibersite and oxide rims between the metal and silicate. The later impact event resulted in melt pockets in the silicate inclusions and was associated with fragmentation, melting, and brecciation of the rims and displacement of some fragments into the melt pockets. These fragments are shown to contain carbon-bearing phases: siderite and amorphous sp 2 carbon, which form carbon–oxide, siderite–oxide, and siderite–schreibersite associations. The fact that the carbon-bearing fragments are spatially constrained to shock breccia and melt zones indicates that these fragments are genetically related to the impact process and that their carbon-bearing phases are of cosmic origin.

  • Pyroxenite veins in spinel peridotites of the Unnavayam sheet, Kuyul
           ophiolite terrane (Koryak Upland): Origin and setting of formation
    • Authors: G. V. Ledneva; B. A. Bazylev; D. V. Kuzmin; N. N. Kononkova
      Pages: 330 - 340
      Abstract: Pyroxenite veins in mantle peridotites of the Unnavayam sheet of the Kuyul ophiolite terrane (Koryak—Kamchatka folded area) are composed of clinopyroxenite and websterite crystallized from a boninite-like melt. The host clinopyroxene-bearing spinel harzburgites are moderately depleted residues, whose mineral compositions and conditions of formation correspond to those of peridotites from mid-oceanic and back-arc spreading centers. Mantle peridotites of the Unnavayam sheet may have formed a part of the mantle wedge above a subduction zone and have been intruded by boninitic melts at a certain stage of their evolution.

  • Geochemistry of Early Devonian rocks of the Sakmara zone, South Urals
    • Authors: P. I. Fedorov; V. G. Korinevsky; B. P. Zolotarev
      Pages: 341 - 354
      Abstract: This paper reports first isotope–geochemical data on the Early Devonian magmatic rocks of the Chanchar potassic mafic volcanoplutonic complex of the Sakmara zone of the South Urals. The incompatible element distribution and ratios indicate that the rocks of the volcanic, subvolcanic, and intrusive facies are comagmatic and were derived from a common source. The low HFSE concentrations relative to MORB and relatively low 87Sr/86Sr and high 143Nd/144Nd ratios suggest that primary melts were generated from a moderately depleted mantle. The LILE enrichment of the rocks indicates a flux of mantle fluid in the primary magma during its evolution.

  • Experimental study of fluorite solubility in acidic solutions as a method
           for boron fluoride complexes studying
    • Authors: M. E. Tarnopolskaia; A. Yu. Bychkov; Yu. V. Shvarov; Yu. A. Popova
      Pages: 355 - 359
      Abstract: Fluorite solubility in HCl and HF solutions with varied concentrations of boric acid was studied at 81, 155, and 208°C and saturated vapor pressure. Our experimental results demonstrate that fluorite solubility increases with increasing B(OH)3 concentration, and this was interpreted as the formation of the BF3OH–complex (Ryss, 1956). The experimental data were used to determine, using the OptimA software, the free energies of formation of HF°(aq) and, which were then used to calculate the constants of the reactions HF = H+ + F– (1) and B(OH)3(aq) + 2H+ + 3 F– (2). The pK 1 values are 3.71 ± 0.013, 4.28 ± 0.015, and 4.89 ± 0.017 and pK 2 13.60 ± 0.02, 13.99 ± 0.02, and 14.95 ± 0.03 at saturated vapor pressure and 81, 155, and 208°C, respectively.

      Pages: 360 - 366
      Abstract: This study presents geochemical data on organic-rich rock samples collected from Riphean—Lower Paleozoic strata (potential source rocks) of the southern Siberian Platform and compositional data on hydrocarbon biomarkers (steranes, terpanes, n-alkanes, 12- and 13-methylalkanes, isoprenanes) and diamondoid hyrocarbons from core samples collected from the Kulindinskaya-1 well, which was drilled by RN-Exploration in 2012 within the Katanga saddle.

  • Sedimentary matter and organic compounds in the aerosols and surface
           waters along the Transatlantic section
    • Authors: I. A. Nemirovskaya
      Pages: 367 - 379
      Abstract: Concentrations and composition of suspended particulate matter and organic compounds (OC), including Сorg, lipids, hydrocarbons (HC), and pigments, were determined in the near-water aerosol layer and in surface waters on the meridional section across the Atlantic Ocean from the port of Ushuaia to the port of Gdansk (Cruise 47th of the R/V Akademic Ioffe, March 26–May, 7, 2015). It was established that the distribution of OC (except for pigments) in aerosols, in general, repeats the distribution of particle number and weight concentrations of aerosols, with maximums in the influence zone of fluxes from Patagonia and African deserts. The concentrations of aerosols changed within wide ranges: from 1237 to 111739 particles/L for 0.3–1 μm fraction; and from 0.02 to 19.890 μg/m3 for aerosols collected by network method (flux of 0.02–34.4 mg/m2 day). The contrasting mineral composition of aeolian material reflects the diversity of its provenances. In surface waters, the studied compounds were accumulated in the frontal river–sea area (runoff of the Rio-Colorado River) and with approaching the coast, especially in the English Channel. A simultaneous change of concentrations of suspended particulate matter and OC is observed only in open oceanic waters.

  • Age and origin of rocks of the Daldyn Group of the Anabar Shield: Evidence
           from U-Pb zircon dating, Sm-Nd and Lu-Hf isotope systematics
    • Authors: L. Yu. Sergeeva; N. I. Gusev; K. I. Lokhov; V. A. Glebovitskii
      Pages: 380 - 383
      Abstract: The Hf-Nd isotope systematics was used to determine the genesis of zircons from granulites of the Daldyn Group of the Anabar Shield. Obtained age of magmatic crystallization for biotite–hypersthene crystalline schists and garnet amphibolites agree with position of zircons within terrestrial array. Magmatic genesis of plagiogranite neosome under granulite conditions was established for leucocratic plagiogneisses.

  • Specifics of analysis of salt rocks from the Verkhnekamskoe deposit for
           Au, Pt, and Pd
    • Authors: E. M. Sedykh; A. F. Smetannikov; L. N. Bannykh; S. N. Shanina
      Pages: 384 - 388
      Abstract: The paper presents data on the possibility of ETAAS analysis, and a technique of this analysis, of salt rocks, their insoluble residues, and organic fractions from these rocks for Au, Pt, and Pd (concentrations from 10–7 to 10–2 ppm). Various techniques for the decomposition of the samples are discussed, and the paper presents information on the extent of Au, Pt, and Pd adsorption from chloride complexes when the POLYORGS-IV complex-forming adsorption agent is applied. The determined atomization parameters of the elements in a graphite furnace are reported. Precious metals are proved to be concentrated in the insoluble residues of the salt rocks and in the slimes (salt wastes) when the salt rocks are processed. The forms in which precious metals are contained in the salt-bearing rocks are determined.

  • Physicochemical model of tin behavior in weathering profiles
    • Authors: V. A. Kopeikin
      Pages: 389 - 392
      Abstract: Numerical simulations of a weathering profile on granite containing 10–8 mol/L Sn (whose average content in the Earth’s crust is 0.00025%) by the SELECTOR program package indicate that cassiterite SnO2 solubility under both oxidizing and reducing conditions is no higher than 10–10 mol/L within the pH range of 3 to 11. The only ion occurring in equilibrium with cassiterite is the neutral Sn(OH)4(aq) 0 complex, which was detected in both oxidizing and reducing environments.

  • Organic matter in ground- and surface waters in the area of the Annenskii
           geothermal field, Russian Far East
    • Authors: V. A. Poturay
      Pages: 393 - 400
      Abstract: The paper presents author’s data on the composition of water-soluble organic matter in thermal, cold groundwaters, and surface waters in the Annenskii geothermal field. The waters contain 75 organic compounds of 13 homologous series, with 72 of these compounds identified in the thermal waters. The compounds are mostly of biogenic origin. Organic matter in the thermal waters differs from that in the cold groundwaters in containing nitrogen-bearing compounds, isoalkanes and alkenes. The compositional specifics of the saturated hydrocarbons suggests their partly abiogenic origin.

  • Modeling the dynamics of sublimation of fractured rocks in the
           lithospheric mantle wedge beneath volcanoes of the Avacha group
    • Authors: V. N. Sharapov; G. V. Kuznetsov; V. P. Logachev; V. K. Cherepanova; A. N. Cherepanov
      Pages: 231 - 250
      Abstract: A quantitative analysis of sublimation of intensely fractured rocks in the mantle wedge was performed using a model of planar fracture channel. The use of dimensionless variables allowed us to analyze the influence of the Nusselt and Sherwood criteria on temperature and variation of the rates of dissolution of minerals and films on fracture walls and estimate both linear and mass sublimation rates. The results of this study predict relatively high rates of major element dissolution and remobilization by flows of magmatic and metamorphic gases over wide temperature range. Physical modeling of this process using natural mantle rock samples confirms the plausibility of the proposed model at least for the case of metamorphic-driven remobilization of elements from gas-liquid inclusions in metasomatized ultramafic rocks. This model provides a satisfactory explanation for the observed local heterophase alterations within ultramafic rocks that have experienced multistage deformation beneath volcanoes of the Kamchatka volcanic front.

  • The role of acidity–basicity in evaporating refractory inclusions in
    • Authors: O. I. Yakovlev; K. M. Ryazantsev; S. I. Shornikov
      Pages: 251 - 256
      Abstract: When melts of Ca–Al inclusions in chondrites, which are dominated by the oxides SiO2, MgO, CaO, and Al2O3, evaporate at high temperatures, the SiO2 and MgO fugacities are inverted: SiO2, which is more volatile than MgO, becomes less volatile when melts rich in refractory CaO and Al2O3 evaporate. This fugacity inversion can be realistically explained within the framework of D.S. Korzhinskii’s theory of acid–base interaction between components in silicate melts. According to this theory, an increase in CaO concentration in the melt increases its basicity, and this, in turn, increases the activity (and hence, also fugacity) of MgO and decreases those of SiO2. In the real compositions of the Ca–Al inclusions in chondrites, the MgO/SiO2 ratio systematically decreases with an increase in the CaO concentration under the effect of acid–base interaction.

  • Thermochemical study of Mg–Fe chlorites
    • Authors: L. P. Ogorodova; L. V. Mel’chakova; M. F. Vigasina; I. A. Kiseleva; I. A. Bryzgalov
      Pages: 257 - 262
      Abstract: The thermochemical study of two natural trioctahedral Mg–Fe chlorites—clinochlores was carried out using high-temperature melt solution calorimetry with a Tian–Calvet microcalorimeter. The enthalpies of formation of clinochlores of compositions (Mg4.9Fe 0.3 2+ Al0.8)[Si3.2Al0.8O10](OH)8 (–8811 ± 12 kJ/mol) and (Mg4.3Fe 0.7 2+ Al1.0)[Si3.0Al1.0O10](OH)8 (–8696 ± 13 kJ/mol) from elements were determined. The values of the standard entropies and the Gibbs energies of formation of the studied natural minerals as well as thermodynamic properties of Mg–Fe chlorites of theoretical composition were estimated.

  • Geochemistry and Nd, Sr isotopes of the Pohrenk fluorites
    • Authors: Y. Uras; A. V. Nikiforov; F. Oner; O. Parlak
      Pages: 263 - 281
      Abstract: The Pohrenk fluorite mineralisation which makes up Central Anatolia’s most extensive fluorite region is Lutetian aged, and hosted in carbonate rocks that have undergone occasional karstification and silicification along a N–S fault trend. Fluid inclusion values and the position of fluorites in the Tb/La–Tb/Ca diagram show that mineralisation occurred in a hydrothermal environment with homogenisation temperatures ranging from 78.1–363°C. The presence of fluorite as a space filler in carbonate rocks and its association with silicification indicates that the solutions contained considerable amounts of Si alongside F (fluorine). The Pohrenk fluorite samples have 143Nd/144Nd values of between 0.512349 and 0.512497, whilst 87Sr/86Sr values vary between 0.708161 and 0.708772. These values indicate a mantle origin where continental contamination could occur. When the Nd–Sr values are compared to magmatic and young volcanics, the Pohrenk fluorites are seen to be enriched and exhibit similar isotopic signatures to Upper Cretaceous aged magmatics, Early-Middle Miocene volcanics and Mio-Quaternary volcanics.

  • Carbonate equilibrium in the water of the Razdol’naya River
    • Authors: P. Ya. Tishchenko; T. A. Mikhailik; G. Yu. Pavlova; P. P. Tishchenko; A. M. Koltunov; Jing Zhang
      Pages: 282 - 293
      Abstract: The paper suggests an accurate approach to studying carbonate equilibrium in the water of the Razdol’naya River. The approach involves measuring pH by Pitzer’s scale, using a cell without liquid junction; measuring the total alkalinity by Bruevich’s technique; and using apparent constants of carbonate equilibrium with regard for the organic alkalinity. The Pitzer technique was employed to calculate the apparent constants of carbonate equilibrium in solution that models the riverine water: Ca(HCO3)2–NaCl–H2O within the range of alkalinity of 0–0.005 mol/kg and temperatures of 0–25°C. Carbonate equilibrium in the water of the Razdol’naya River was sampled for studying at eight sites during all four seasons. Although the contents of biogenic compounds in the water are high, they can merely insignificantly affect the acid–base equilibrium, which is controlled in the riverine water by carbonate equilibrium and the concentrations of humic substances, which play the greater role, the greater the discharge of the river. In addition to the production and destruction of organic matter, carbonate equilibrium in the river is also affected by the supply of humic substances with soil waters and total alkalinity with groundwaters. The fluxes of alkalinity and humic substances annually brought by the Razdol’naya River to Amur Bay are evaluated at 1.33 × 109 mol and 9.9 × 106 kgC, respectively. The carbon dioxide export with the Razdol’naya River is equal to the alkalinity flux and does not depend on the weathering mechanisms.

  • Fluorine mobilization from rocks under the action of organic acids
    • Authors: A. V. Savenko; V. S. Savenko
      Pages: 294 - 298
      Abstract: This paper presents the results of experimental study of fluorine leaching from rocks of various basicity by distilled water and multicomponent organic acid solution, in which the frequency distribution of dissociation constants of carboxyl groups correspond to that of natural soil solutions. It is shown that organic acids significantly enhance the intensity of fluorine leaching from rocks as compared to distilled water. A positive correlation was established between fluorine and magnesium extracted from different rocks by organic acids (r = 0.92). The correlation between fluorine and other main petrogenic elements is absent. Intensity of fluorine mobilization from rocks under the action of organic acids increases with the growth of basicity of the rocks with decreasing their chemical stability in the following sequence: meimechite > basaltic andesite > albitized rhyodacite > alkaline agpaitic granite.

  • Specifics of strontium accumulation in the floodplain soils of the Kuda
           River, Irkutsk Region
    • Authors: P. V. Kuznetsov; E. V. Chuparina; O. A. Proidakova; T. S. Aisueva
      Pages: 299 - 305
      Abstract: Data on strontium accumulation acquired by studying the floodplain soils of the Kuda River, Irkutsk Region, show that the bulk accumulation of this element and the accumulation of its water-soluble species are controlled by evaporative concentration. Floodplain areas maximally enriched in water-soluble strontium are defined. These areas are the most potentially hazardous if involved in agricultural activities because Sr can be transferred there into the surface- and soil–groundwaters in concentrations several times higher than the maximum permissible concentrations of this element in water bodies.

  • Comments on the paper “The nature of “Svecofennian” zircon in the
           Belomorian Mobile Belt and some geological implications” by A.A.
           Shchipanskii and A.I. Slabunov

      Abstract: Eclogites were relatively recently found in the Belomorian Mobile Belt (BMB) (Volodichev et al., 2004; Shchipanskii et al., 2005; Konilov et al., 2004). The very first isotopic dates (Volodichev et al., 2004; Mints et al., 2010) were obtained for these rocks in the northwestern (in the Salma and Kuru-Vaara areas) and central (Gridino area) portions of BMB and corresponded to the Archean: approximately 2.72–2.87 Ga. Because no crustal eclogites older that 2.0 Ga (Möller et al., 1995) had been known before these dates were obtained, these eclogites were regarded as unique. It is commonly believed that no crustal eclogites could be formed in the Archean because the crust was then relatively thin (Kröner, 2010), and hence, the find of crustal eclogites of Archean age in BMB called for a fundamental revision of geodynamic reconstructions of the crustal evolution and was one of the main arguments invoked to support the hypothesis that currently operating geodynamic mechanisms of plate tectonic can be extrapolated to the Early Precambrian (Rozen et al., 2008). However, these finds were practically immediately followed by serious doubts that the primary estimates of the timing of the eclogite metamorphism in the Belomorian Belt may be incorrect (Mitrofanov et al., 2009; and others).

  • Nickel, molybdenum, and cobalt in the black shales of the Bazhenov
           Formation of the West Siberian basin
    • Authors: Yu. N. Zanin; A. G. Zamirailova; V. G. Eder
      Pages: 195 - 204
      Abstract: It was shown that the contents of Ni, Mo, and Co in the siliceous clay black shale rocks of the normal sections of the Bazhenov Formation are several times higher than the global mean contents of these elements in black shales. These rocks have the highest contents of pyrite and organic carbon and show evidence for strongly reducing formation conditions at the slowest background rate of sedimentation of their material. A transition from the siliceous clay rocks to the mudstones of normal section, which are considered as turbidites, and further to the mudstones and clayey silt rocks of the so-called anomalous sections (deposits of submarine deltas and canyons) is accompanied by sequential depletion in pyrite and organic carbon, a decrease in indicators of the reduction level of the sedimentation environment, and an increase in sedimentation rate and clay material content. Simultaneously, the contents of the elements of interest decreases in the sequence Mo > Ni > Co. In the rocks of anomalous sections, the contents of these elements decrease to the level of their mean abundances in clays.
