  • The influence of low aluminum concentrations on the composition and
           conditions of crystallization of majorite–knorringite garnets:
           Experiment at 7.0 GPa and 1500–1700°C
    • Abstract: Abstract Crystallization of garnet in high-chromium restite formed under the conditions of partial melting in the spinel facies and subsequently subducted into the garnet depth facies was studied experimentally in the MgO–Al2O3–Cr2O3–SiO2 system. The crystallization of garnet and the dependence of its composition on the temperature and bulk composition of the system with low Al concentration were studied as well. Experiments in the knorringite–majorite–pyrope system with 5, 10, and 20 mol % Prp were carried out at 7 GPa. The phase associations for the starting composition of pure knorringite Mg3Cr2Si3O12 included chromiumbearing enstatite MgSiO3 (up to 3.2 wt % Cr2O3) and eskolaite Cr2O3. Addition of Al resulted in crystallization of high-chromium majoritic garnet. The portion of garnet in the samples always exceeded the concentration of pyrope in the starting composition owing to the formation of the complex majorite–knorringite–pyrope series of solid solutions. With increasing content of pyrope (from 5 to 20 mol %) and increasing temperature, the modal concentration of garnet increased significantly (from 6–12 to 22–37%). The garnet was characterized by high concentrations of the pyrope (23–80 mol %) and knorringite (22–70 mol %) components. The excess of Si (>3 f.u.) with decreasing Cr concentration provided evidence for the contribution of the majorite–knorringite trend to the variation in garnet composition. On the basis of the natural data, most of the garnets composing xenoliths of ultrabasic rocks in kimberlites and occurring as inclusions in diamonds are low-chromium; i.e., their protolith was not subjected to partial melting, at least in the spinel depth facies.

  • Formation of adakitic granitoids in the collisional orogens: Evidence from
           the Early Paleozoic granitoids of the Munku–Sardyk Range, Eastern
    • Abstract: Abstract The classical models of adakite formation by melting of basaltic layer of oceanic lithosphere in the subduction zone were verified using geochemical and Sr–Nd isotope data on the Early Paleozoic granitoids of Eastern Sayan. The presence of adakites in fold belts is usually regarded as geochemical proxy for paleogeodynamic reconstruction. The formation of felsic derivatives with adakitic signatures in the collisional orogens is inconsistent with these models and requires their revision. It is shown that the composition of the granitoids and their evolution cannot be described with these models. In order to solve this problem, two hypotheses of granitoid formation by mixing of two geochemically contrasting reservoirs were proposed and verified. According to the first hypothesis, the granitoids represent the mixing products between alkaline olivine basalts and partial melts of the gray gneiss basement of this region. The second model relates the formation of the granitoids with melting of geochemically 2700 Ma-old enriched source in the subcontinental lithospheric mantle. In spite of differences, both these hypotheses are based on the remobilization of sources formed at the previous stages of the geological evolution of the region. In both cases, adakitic geochemical characteristics of forming felsic magmas are determined by the composition of protolith rather than by their geodynamic position. Obtained preliminary results place constraints on genetic models and geochemical reservoirs participating in the formation of the granitoids.

  • Solubility and migration ability of rhodium in natural conditions: model
           experimental data
    • Abstract: Abstract The contents of dissolved rhodium species in the near-neutral environments have been studied for the first time and data on the interaction of Rh with organic matters of natural waters and its sorption behavior during contact with the components of geochemical barriers were obtained. The solubility method was used to analyze the behavior of rhodium hydroxide in the Rh(OH) x –H2O and Rh(OH) x –H2O–FA (fulvic acids) systems. The possible contents of inorganic species of rhodium and its compounds with humic organic ligands were determined within the pH range typical of surface waters. The solubility of rhodium shows a twoorder- of magnitude increase in the presence of humic matters (FA). The sorption interaction of the soluble rhodium species with the main components of geochemical barriers such as iron oxyhydroxides (III), (including fulvic-acid modified ones), alumosilicates, and precipitates of humic acids in contact with natural waters was studied. It was revealed that rhodium has the high affinity to all studied materials; its species are sorbed by ferrihydrite within several hours. It is suggested that rhodium is mainly transferred as colloid with suspended particulate matters of waters and then is accumulated in bottom sediments. The differences revealed in the sorption behavior of Pt(IV), Pd(II) and Rh(III) may be used to predict the distribution of the considered platinum group elements between the components of ecosystems.

    • Abstract: Abstract An attempt is made to compare discrimination diagrams of the first (mid-1980s) and second (early 2010s) generations compiled using data for sedimentary successions of different ages. Our results suggest that the diagrams of different generations allow more or less correct discrimination only between the platform, rift, passive margin, and island arc settings. The data for collision sediments do not form separate fields in these diagrams.

  • Effect of redox conditions on iron metal phase segregation during
           experimental high-temperature centrifuge modeling of the origin of the
           Moon’s core
    • Abstract: Abstract The possible origin of the Moon’s metallic core at the precipitation of iron–sulfide phases during the partial melting of ultramafic material under various redox conditions was experimentally modeled by partially melting the model system olivine (85 wt %) + ferrobasalt (10 wt %) + metallic phase Fe95S5 (wt %) in a high-temperature centrifuge at 1430–1450°C. The oxygen fugacity fO2 was determined from the composition of the quenched experimental silicate melts (glasses). A decrease in fO2 is proved to be favorable for the segregation of iron–sulfide melt from the silicate matrix. The metallic phase is most effectively segregated in the form of melt droplets, and these droplets are accumulated in the lower portions of the samples under strongly reduced conditions, at fO2 ∼ 4.5–5.5 orders of magnitude lower than the iron–wüstite buffer.

  • Geochemistry and isotopic ages of granitoids of the Bashkirian
           Mega-Anticlinorium: Evidence for several pulses of tectono–magmatic
           activity at the junction zone between the Uralian orogen and East European
    • Abstract: Abstract The study provides the first evidence for post-Riphean phases of granite emplacement in the Bashkirian Mega-Anticlinorium (BMA) at the boundary between the East European Platform and Uralian orogen. The tectono-thermal activity in the BMA is well-constrained by emplacement of the Kusa–Kopan plagiogranitoid intrusion (660 Ma) and late gneiss–granites of the Yurma complex (540 Ma). The geochemical features of these rocks are transitional between within-plate rift and orogenic suites. It was shown that the Paleozoic stage of the BMA was marked by emplacement of granites of the Kialim massif (314 Ma) and Semibratka complex (300 Ma). The age and geochemical features of these rocks are similar to those of Carboniferous granites of the Uralian orogen, which are interpreted to mark the end of subduction and beginning of collision. This similarity suggests that the BMA was adjoined to the Uralian orogen in the Carboniferous and Paleozoic granite emplacement in both structures was the result of their common geological evolution and protoliths of a similar geochemical composition.

  • Leaching rare-earth and radioactive elements from alkaline rocks of the
           Lovozero Massif, Kola Peninsula
    • Abstract: Abstract The paper presents data on the leaching efficiency of rare-earth (La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Eu, Gd, Tb, Dy, Ho, Er, Tm, Yb, and Lu) and radioactive (Th and U) elements by various reagents from alkaline rocks of the Lovozero Massif. Element concentrations were analyzed by ICP-MS and instrumental neutral activation (INAA). A new complex technique is suggested for analyzing elements on the solid phase of polymer hydrogels. This technique makes it possible to enhance the sensitivity and selectivity of INAA when these elements are simultaneously contained in rocks. Data are presented on the selective leaching of trace elements and the application of environmentally safe reagents.

  • Comparative analysis of radioactive cesium wash-off from contaminated
           catchment areas after accidents at the Fukushima Dai-ichi and Chernobyl
           nuclear power plants
    • Abstract: Abstract The paper presents quantitative data on radiocesium wash-off (dissolved and particulate) from catchment areas after the accident at the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant. The evaluations are conducted based on published data on radiocesium monitoring in streams in the accident zone and monitoring at standard USLE plots. The characteristics of radiocesium wash-off and its distribution coefficient in riverine waters and surface runoff are analyzed by comparing data obtained on the territories of the Fukushima and Chernobyl accidents within a few years after the accidents. The normalized radiocesium wash-off coefficients in solution for the Fukushima river catchment area are one to two orders of magnitude lower than the analogous values for the Chernobyl catchment area. The normalized wash-off coefficients of radiocesium on particulate matter in the Fukushima and Chernobyl catchment areas are comparable. However, at least twice higher mean annual precipitation and steeper slopes in the Fukushima catchment area result in a higher annual wash-off coefficient than that of the Chernobyl area. It is demonstrated that characteristics of radiocesium wash-off obtained at USLE plots can be utilized to evaluate the scales of natural catchment areas.

  • The geothermal model of Mersin (Turkey) region
    • Abstract: Abstract The purpose of the study is to present the geothermal model of Mersin (Camili) region geothermal area with its geology, hydrogeology, hydrogeochemistry and isotope hydrology. The 1/25000 scale geology map obtained from the literature research is revised. In order to obtain a geothermal model, geological crosssections are extracted in certain points on the revised geology map. There are 3 hot water outlets. There are MC-1, C-1 and Uclu Cesme deep drillings. MC-1 well is 420 m, approximately 43.6°C temperature and 35 L/s flow rate and C-1 is 150 m, 40.3°C and 35 L/s. There is no exact information about the depth of Uclu Cesme well, but its average temperature is 37.5°C and it has a very low flow rate. Isotope analyses of the water samples obtained from these three wells and the Icme Dere are carried out by using the IRMS method with δ18O–δ2H (Deuterium) and IAEA method with 3H (Tritium). Radioactive Alpha-Beta determination and Physico-chemical and Bacteriological analyses of MC-1 well are made by using EPA 900.00. δ18O–δ2H isotope ratios clearly indicate a meteoric origin for the waters. In the light of all this information, the revised 1/25000 scare geology map of Mersin Guneyyolu (Camili) geothermal area is obtained; it is found out that hot waters are of meteoric origin; and the isotope hydrology and hydro-chemical assessment of the area is conducted to shape the geothermal model.

  • Geochemistry and petrogenesis of the Late Mesozoic–Early Cenozoic
           volcanic rocks of the Okhotsk and Japan marginal seas
    • Abstract: Abstract The results of ICP-MS trace-element (LILE, HFSE, REE) study of the Late Mesozoic–Early Cenozoic volcanic rocks of the Okhotsk and Japan seas and geochronological K-Ar dating of the Eocene volcanic rocks are presented. Specifics of volcanism developed on submarine rises of these seas was characterized for the first time, and magma sources and geodynamic settings of the volcanic complexes predating the formation of the deep-water basins were determined. It is established that the Late Mesozoic magmas were formed in a subduction setting from spinel peridotites of suprasubduction mantle wedge, which was metasomatically reworked by aqueous fluids that were released by dehydration of sedimentary layer of subducting oceanic plate. This follows from the elevated concentrations of H2O, alkalis, potassium, LILE and LREE, and lowered HFSE (including Ta-Nb minimum) and HREE contents, at lowered Sm/Yb, Nb/Ta, Nb/Y and elevated La/Nb, Ba/La, and Zr/Y ratios. Eocene adakite-like volcanic rocks were identified for the first time in the Sea of Okhotsk. They vary from andesitic to more felsic compositions with elevated MgO (>4%) and elevated La/Yb (>14) and Sr/Y (50–60) ratios. Identification of adakite-like volcanic rocks serves as evidence in support of the transform continental-margin (or plate sliding) setting, which is characterized by breaking apart of subduction slab and formation of slab “windows” acting as pathways for the transfer of asthenospheric mantle into continental lithosphere. New geochemical data on the Late Mesozoic–Early Cenozoic volcanic rocks of the Okhotsk and Japan seas and analysis of literature data were used to distinguish two geodynamic settings within these seas: subduction and transform margin. Similar settings operated at that time in the adjacent continental- margin volcanic belts (Akinin and Miller, 2011; Martynov and Khanchuk, 2013; et al.).

  • Geochemical evolution of amphibolites and gneisses of the Belomorian
           mobile belt during Paleoproterozoic metamorphism
    • Abstract: Abstract We present the results of a comparative study of the geochemical changes of amphibolites and gneisses from the Belomorian mobile belt in response to plagiomigmatization, high-pressure metamorphism, two-feldspar migmatization, and secondary amphibolization during Paleoproterozoic (Svecofennian) tectonometamorphic activation. It is established that most of the Paleoproterozoic metamorphic processes are nonisochemical for major and trace elements, which is possibly caused by the interaction of protolithic rocks with metamorphic fluids. The finds of eclogites within the Belomorian mobile belt are spatially and genetically related to the large fields of apoamphibolite and apogneiss plagiomigmatites. Apoamphibolite eclogites, Grt–Aug eclogite-like rocks, apoamphibolite and apogneiss plagiomigmatites were formed by a single process initiated by the influence of an alkaline fluid on the amphibolite–gneiss complex. This was accompanied by the depletion of the rocks in HREE, enrichment in LREE, disappearance of the negative and formation of the positive europium anomaly. The formation of later two-feldspar migmatites was related to the reworking of the gneiss–migmatite–amphibolite complex by more acid fluids, which led to the depletion of microclinized rocks in LREE. Secondary amphibolization and epidotization of the basites and metabasites did not affect their REE distribution pattern.

  • Regional and local magmatic anomalies and tectonics of rift zones between
           the Antarctic and South American plates
    • Abstract: Abstract The study provides new understanding of magmatism at extinct and modern spreading zones around the western margin of East Antarctica from Bransfield Strait to the Bouvet Triple Junction (BTJ) in the Atlantic Ocean and reveals causes of geochemical heterogeneity of mantle magmatism during the early opening of the Southern Ocean. The results indicate the involvement of an enriched source component in the generation of parental melts, which was formed in several tectonic stages. The enriched (metasomatized) mantle generated at rift zones has geochemical characteristics typical of the western Gondwana lithosphere (with isotopic compositions similar to those inferred for the enriched HIMU and EM-2 sources). This mantle source may have been produced by the thermal erosion of the continental mantle during the early stages of the Karoo–Maud–Ferrar superplume activity. This enriched mantle generated in the apical parts of the plume (sub-oceanic) began to melt during tectonic displacement and fragmentation of Gondwana. The Bouvet Triple Junction, located along modern spreading zones between the Antarctic and South American plate, is characterized by a greater depth of melting and a higher degree of enrichment of primary tholeiitic magmas. The highest enrichment of magmas in this region is controlled by a contribution from a pyroxenite-rich component, which was also identified in the extinct spreading center in Powell Basin.

  • Volatile and trace elements in alkaline and subalkaline melts of ocean
           islands: Evidence from inclusions in minerals and quenched glasses of
    • Abstract: Abstract Our database of published contents of volatile, major, and trace elements in melt inclusions in minerals and quenched glasses of volcanic rocks was used to calculate the mean compositions of alkaline and subalkaline melts of ocean islands. The data array included ~10300 determinations from more than 200 publications. The alkaline basic melts (mean Na2O + K2O is 4.75 wt %) are strongly enriched compared with the subalkaline melts (mean Na2O + K2O is 2.70 wt %) in volatile components (0.96 and 0.37 wt % H2O, 650 and 190 ppm Cl, 1480 and 320 ppm F, and 930 and 530 ppm S, respectively) and many trace elements. For instance, the alkaline and subalkaline melts contain 31.8 and 7.2 ppm Rb, 50.1 and 9.6 ppm Nb, and 39.9 and 5.7 ppm La, respectively. Such relations were not observed for V, Cr, Co, Cu, Ga, and Sc. As to the major elements, the alkaline melts show significantly higher contents of Ti, Fe, and P, but lower contents of Si and Mg compared with the subalkaline melts. The enrichment of the alkaline melts in many trace elements compared with the subalkaline melts is retained also in silicic melts. The distribution of trace elements suggests a higher contribution of pyroxenite material during the formation of alkaline melts.

  • Bioaccumulation of mercury in fish as indicator of water pollution
    • Abstract: Abstract The mercury content is studied in fish from the European Russian lakes and rivers. The results revealed significant accumulation of mercury in fish as the uppermost trophic level of aquatic ecosystems even at extremely low (<10 ng/L) content of this element in water. The maximum accumulation was found in the predatory fishes from Middle and Lower Volga, Severnaya Dvina, and small lakes subjected to anthropogenic air pollution. The influence of temperature and geochemical factors on the penetrative ability of mercury in a fish organism is considered.

  • Chemical transformation of the runoff of dissolved matters in the mouth
           areas of the Onega and Mezen’ rivers
    • Abstract: Abstract Natural observations were analyzed to study the distribution of dissolved species of major and trace elements in the Onega and Mezen’ mouth areas and the tendencies in the chemical transformations of the is continental runoff in the river mouths of the White Sea drainage system. It is shown that the migration of major ions and dissolved species of Li, Rb, Cs, Sr, B, F and Mo is consistent with a conservative behavior and is controlled by hydrodynamic processes. The amounts of uranium and barium additionally supplying in the Mezen’ mouth exceed those removed with a continental runoff, whereas the Onega, Severnaya Dvina, and other rivers of the White Sea drainage system are characterized by the conservative behavior of uranium, while barium desorption from particulate matter reaches no more than 33% of its content in the riverine waters. The growth of concentrations of these elements in the Mezen’ mouth is caused by the long-term interaction of solid matters of the continental runoff with saline waters in the tide-affected estuary. 28–59, 12–63, 25–67 and 20–63% of concentrations of iron, aluminum, lanthanum, and cerium are removed from the riverine waters in the mouth areas of all studied rivers of the White Sea drainage system mainly owing to the coagulation and flocculation of organic and organomineral colloids. The distribution of dissolved species of mineral phosphorus and silicon in the Mezen’ mouth is presumably controlled by the remineralization of the organic matter in the bottom sediments, which due to the hydrological features of estuary are regularly stirred up and interact with vertically mixing water sequence. Up to 20–46% of dissolved phosphates and 3–22% of silicon are removed from the continental runoff during vegetation period in the mouths of the Onega, Severnaya Dvina, and other rivers of the White Sea drainage system mainly owing to their biological consumption.
