  • Molecular and structural-group characteristics of hydrocarbons in Late
           Devonian oils of the Timan–Pechora Province
    • Authors: D. A. Bushnev; M. B. Smirnov; N. S. Burdel’naya; O. V. Valyaeva
      Pages: 802 - 813
      Abstract: The paper presents gaz chromatography–mass spectrometry and 1H- and 13C-NMR data on the composition of hydrocarbon markers and structural-group composition of oils in the Timan–Pechora oil and gas province. The set of samples is subdivided into groups whose oils differ in composition and the distribution of their polycyclic biomarkers. All of the oils show closely similar geochemical characteristics, types of their source organic matter, and thermal maturity. Comparison of oil characteristics (composition of the polycyclic biomarkers) and parameters determined by chromatography–mass spectrometry makes it possible to reveal certain important (and calling for further investigation) relations between the composition of the structural groups of hydrocarbons in the oil fluid and its geochemical characteristics.

      Pages: 814 - 821
      Abstract: The paper reports original thermochemical data on six natural amphibole samples of different composition. The data were obtained by high-temperature melt solution calorimetry in a Tian–Calvet microcalorometer and include the enthalpies of formation from elements for actinolite Ca1.95(Mg4.4Fe 0.5 2+ Al01)[Si8.0O22](OH)2(–12024 ± 13 kJ/mol) and Ca2.0(Mg2.9Fe 1.9 2+ Fe 0.2 3+ )[Si7.8Al0.2O22](OH)2, (–11462 ± 18 kJ/mol), and Na0.1Ca2.0(Mg3.2Fe 1.6 2+ Fe 0.2 3+ )[Si7.7Al0.3O22](OH)2 (–11588 ± 14 kJ/mol); for pargasite Na0.5K0.5Ca2.0-(Mg3.4Fe 1.8 2+ Al0.8)[Si6.2Al1.8O22](OH)2 (–12316 ± 10 kJ/mol) and Na0.8K0.2Ca2.0(Mg2.8Fe 1.3 3+ Al0.9) [Si6.1Al1.9O22](OH)2 (–12 223 ± 9 kJ/mol); and for hastingsite Na0.3K0.2Ca2.0(Mg0.4Fe 1.3 2+ Fe 0.9 3+ Al0.2) [Si6.4Al1.6O22](OH)2 (‒10909 ± 11 kJ/mol). The standard entropy, enthalpy, and Gibbs free energy of formation are estimated for amphiboles of theoretical composition: end members and intermediate members of the isomorphic series tremolite–ferroactinolite, edenite–ferroedenite, pargasite–ferropargasite, and hastingsite.

  • Crystallization temperature of anatectic melt: An example of
           biotite–muscovite granite in the Rikolatvi structure, Belomorian Mobile
    • Authors: T. F. Shcherbakova
      Pages: 833 - 839
      Abstract: Zircon hosted in granite, which crystallized from local pools of anatectic melt among migmatites, in the Rikolatvi structure, Belomorian Mobile Belt, contains minute inclusions of various minerals, biotite and garnet among others. The compositions of the biotite and garnet in the microinclusions differ from those of the same minerals in the granite containing the zircon. The crystallization temperature of the anatectic melt was estimated by the biotite–garnet geothermometer and the composition of the biotite and garnet inclusions at ~800°C.

  • Origin of isotopically light nitrogen in meteorites
    • Authors: A. B. Verchovsky
      Pages: 957 - 970
      Abstract: Bulk meteorite samples of various chemical classes and petrologic types (mainly carbonaceous chondrites) were systematically investigated by the stepped combustion method with the simultaneous isotopic analysis of carbon, nitrogen, and noble gases. A correlation was revealed between planetary noble gases associating with the Q phase and isotopically light nitrogen (δ15N up to –150‰). The analysis of this correlation showed that the isotopically light nitrogen (ILN) is carried by Q. In most meteorites, isotopically heavy nitrogen (IHN) of organic compounds (macromolecular material) is dominant. The ILN of presolar grains (diamond and SiC) and Q can be detected after separation from dominant IHN. Such a separation of nitrogen from Q and macromolecular material occurs under natural conditions and during laboratory stepped combustion owing to Q shielding from direct contact with oxygen, which results in Q oxidation at temperatures higher than the temperatures of the release of most IHN. There are arguments that ILN released at high temperature cannot be related to nanodiamond and SiC. The separation effect allowed us to constrain the contents of noble gases in Q, assuming that this phase is carbon-dominated. The directly measured 36Ar/C and 132Xe/C ratios in ILN-rich temperature fractions are up to 0.1 and 1 × 10–4 cm3/g, respectively. These are only lower constraints on the contents. The analysis of the obtained data on the three-isotope diagram δ15N–36Ar/14N showed that Q noble gases were lost to a large extent from most meteorites during the metamorphism of their parent bodies. Hence, the initial contents of noble gases in Q could be more than an order of magnitude higher than those directly measured. Compared with other carbon phases, Q was predominantly transformed to diamond in ureilites affected by shock metamorphism. The analysis of their Ar–N systematics showed that, similar to carbonaceous chondrites, noble gases were lost from Q probably before its transformation to diamond.

      Pages: 971 - 976

  • He, Ne, Ar stepwise crushing data on basalt glasses from different
           segments of Bouvet Triple Junction
    • Authors: A. I. Buikin; N. A. Migdisova; J. Hopp; E. V. Korochantseva; M. Trieloff
      Pages: 977 - 987
      Abstract: Here we present the first data on He, Ne, Ar isotopic and elemental composition in fluid phases of tholeiitic chilled glasses from the Bouvet Triple Junction (BTJ). The chilled glasses from several dredging stations situated at different segments of BTJ have been investigated: Spiess Ridge, Mid Atlantic Ridge (MAR) and in a valley of the Southwest Indian Ridge (SWIR). The data allow to distinguish within BTJ three segments characterized by different geochemical behavior of He, Ne and Ar. MAR and Spiess samples contain MORB-like helium and neon while SWIR is characterized by addition of plume type He and Ne. The strong atmospheric contamination is typical of all segments, but for MAR it is less pronounced. The Ne-Ar isotope systematics suggests that the atmospheric component was most probably introduced into the mantle source of the fluids with fragments of oceanic crust/sediments.

  • Evidence for large scale fractionation of carbon isotopes and of nitrogen
           impurity during crystallization of gem quality cubic diamonds from placers
           of North Yakutia
    • Authors: V. N. Reutsky; A. A. Shiryaev; S. V. Titkov; M. Wiedenbeck; N. N. Zudina
      Pages: 988 - 999
      Abstract: The spatial distribution of carbon and nitrogen isotopes and of nitrogen concentrations is studied in detail in three gem quality cubic diamonds of variety II according to Orlov’s classification. Combined with the data on composition of fluid inclusions our results point to the crystallization of the diamonds from a presumably oxidized carbonate fluid. It is shown that in the growth direction δ13C of the diamond becomes systematically lighter by 2–3‰ (from –13.7 to –15.6‰ for one profile and from –11.7 to –14.1‰ for a second profile). Simultaneously, we observe substantial decrease in the nitrogen concentration (from 400–1000 to 10–30 at ppm) and a previously unrecognized enrichment of nitrogen in light isotope, exceeding 30‰. The systematic and substantial changes of the chemical and isotopic composition can be explained using the Burton-Prim-Slichter model, which relates partition coefficients of an impurity with the crystal growth rate. It is shown that changes in effective partition coefficients due to a gradual decrease in crystal growth rate describes fairly well the observed scale of the chemical and isotopic variations if the diamond-fluid partition coefficient for nitrogen is significantly smaller than unity. This model shows that nitrogen isotopic composition in diamond may result from isotopic fractionation during growth and not reflect isotopic composition of the mantle fluid. Furthermore, it is shown that the infra-red absorption at 1332 сm-1 is an integral part of the Y-defect spectrum. In the studied natural diamonds the 1290 сm-1 IR absorption band does not correlate with boron concentration.

  • Origin of corundum rocks of the Belomorian mobile belt: Evidence from
           noble gas isotope geochemistry
    • Authors: E. Yu. Akimova; E. N. Kozlov; K. I. Lokhov
      Pages: 1000 - 1009
      Abstract: The noble gas isotopic composition is studied in gas-liquid microinclusions from minerals of the corundum-bearing and host rocks of the Khitoostrov occurrence, North Karelia. It was established for the first time that fluid participating in the formation of rocks with anomalous oxygen isotopic composition is devoid of an atmospheric component, while helium and neon show significant fractionation relative to argon. The formation of rocks with extremely light oxygen isotope composition was related to the effect of endogenous fluid.

  • Pb–Pb isotopic systematics of orogenic gold deposits of the
           Baikal–Patom fold belt (Northern Transbaikalia, Russia) and estimation
           of the role of neoproterozoic crust in their formation
    • Authors: A. V. Chugaev; I. V. Chernyshev
      Pages: 1010 - 1021
      Abstract: The paper reports the results of Pb isotope study of several gold deposits of the Russia’s largest metallogenic province of Northern Transbaikalia. Potential sources of the ore material are considered by the example of new and previously published Pb–Pb data on nine deposits and occurrences of different scales. The comparison of Pb–Pb isotope-geochemical characteristics of ores, Paleozoic granitoids, as well as metamorphic pyrite from barren metasedimentary sequences shows that the Neoproterozoic terrigenous–carbonate rocks of the Baikal–Patom fold belt (BPB) served as the main source of lead and other components in the mineral-forming systems of the deposits. Significant variations of Pb isotope ratios typical in general of the considered deposits of the BPB reflect the initial isotopic heterogeneity of Pb source. This heterogeneity is caused by mixing of two geochemical types of continental crust during sedimentation: old (Early Precambrian) crust of the Siberian craton with long-term geochemical evolution and newly formed Late Precambrian crust. Pb–Pb data serve in support of the hydrothermal–metamorphogenic hypothesis of the formation of gold deposits of the BPB.

  • Isotope (δD, δ 18 О) systematics in waters of the Russian
           Arctic seas
    • Authors: E. O. Dubinina; S. A. Kossova; A. Yu. Miroshnikov; N. M. Kokryatskaya
      Pages: 1022 - 1032
      Abstract: Oxygen and hydrogen isotope analysis was performed to study the processes of distribution of water masses and modification of their salinity in the Russian Arctic seas. A wealth of new isotopic data was obtained for freshwater (river runoff, Novaya Zemlya glaciers) and seawater samples collected along a set of extended 2D profiles in the Barents, Kara, and Laptev Seas. The study presents the first δD values measured for the Northeast Atlantic Deep Water NEADW dominated the water column of the Barents Sea (S = 34.90 ± 0.05, δD = +1.55 ± 0.4‰, δ18O = +0.26 ± 0.1‰, n = 44). This water mass is present in the Kara Sea and western Laptev Sea. The relationship between δD, δ18О, and salinity data was used to calculate the fractions of waters of different origin, including the fractions of continental runoff in waters of the Barents, Kara, and Laptev Seas. It was shown that the relationships between the isotopic parameters (δD, δ18О) and salinity in waters of the Kara and Laptev Seas is controlled by the intensity of continental runoff and sea ice processes. Sea ice formation is the main factor controlling the formation of the water column on the Laptev Sea shelf, whereas the surface waters of the middle Kara Sea are dominated by the contribution of river runoff. A very strong stratification in the Kara Sea is caused by the presence of a relatively fresh surface layer mostly contributed by estuarine water inputs from the Ob and Yenisei Rivers. The contribution of river waters reaches 40–60% in the surface layer in the central part of the sea and decreases to a few percent down 100 m water depth. Stratification in the western part of the Laptev Sea is controlled by the contribution of freshwater input from the Lena River and modification of salinity by sea ice formation.

      Abstract: The paper presents original authors' data on the O, H, C, S, and Sr isotopic composition of water and sediments from the basins into which the Aral Sea split after its catastrophic shoaling: Chernyshev Bay (CB), the basin of the Great Aral in the north, Lake Tshchebas (LT), and Minor Sea (MS). The data indicate that the δ18О, δD, δ13C, and δ34S of the water correlate with the mineralization (S) of the basins (as of 2014): for CB, S = 135.6‰, δ18О = 4.8 ± 0.1‰, δD = 5 ± 2‰, δ13C (dissolved inorganic carbon, DIC) = 3.5 ± 0.1‰, δ34S = 14.5‰; for LT, S = 83.8‰, δ18О = 2.0 ± 0.1‰, δD =–13.5 ± 1.5‰, δ13C = 2.0 ± 0.1‰, δ34S = 14.2‰; and for MS, S = 9.2‰, δ18О =–2.0 ± 0.1‰, δD =–29 ± 1‰, δ13C =–0.5 ± 0.5‰, δ34S = 13.1‰. The oxygen and hydrogen isotopic composition of the groundwaters are similar to those in MS and principally different from the artesian waters fed by atmospheric precipitation. The mineralization, δ13С, and δ34S of the groundwaters broadly vary, reflecting interaction with the host rocks. The average δ13С values of the shell and detrital carbonates sampled at the modern dried off zones of the basins are similar: 0.8 ± 0.8‰ for CB, 0.8 ± 1.4‰ for LT, and –0.4 ± 0.3‰ for MS. The oxygen isotopic composition of the carbonates varies much more broadly, and the average values are as follows: 34.2 ± 0.2‰ for CB, 32.0 ± 2.2‰ for LT, and 28.2 ± 0.9‰ for MS. These values correlate with the δ18O of the water of the corresponding basins. The carbonate cement of the Late Eocene sandstone of the Chengan Formation, which makes up the wave-cut terrace at CB, has anomalously low δ13С up to –38.5‰, suggesting origin near a submarine methane seep. The δ34S of the mirabilite and gypsum (11.0 to 16.6‰) from the bottom sediments and young dried off zone also decrease from CB to MS in response to increasing content of sulfates brought by the Syr-Darya River (δ34S = 9.1 to 9.9‰) and weakening sulfate reduction. The 87Sr/86Sr ratio in the water and carbonates of the Aral basins do not differ, within the analytical error, and is 0.70914 ± 0.00003 on average. This value indicate that the dominant Sr source of the Aral Sea is Mesozoic–Cenozoic carbonate rocks. The Rb–Sr systems of the silicate component of the bottom silt (which is likely dominated by eolian sediments) of MS and LT plot on the Т = 160 ± 5 Ma, I 0 = 0.7091 ± 0.0001, pseudochron. The Rb–Sr systems of CB are less ordered, and the silt is likely a mixture of eolian and alluvial sediments.

  • Evolution of biogeochemical cycles under anthropogenic loads: Limits
    • Authors: T. I. Moiseenko
      Pages: 841 - 860
      Abstract: Human activities pathogenically modify biogeochemical cycles via introducing vast amounts of chemical elements and compounds into biotic cycles and inducing evolutionary transformations of the organic world of the biosphere. The adverse phenomena develop cascadewise, as is illustrated by the increase in the content of carbon dioxide and acid-forming compounds, enrichment of aquatic environments by metals, and pollution with persistent organic pollutants and biogenic elements. Analogies with the past are utilized to estimate the possible implications of the evolution of anthropogenically induced processes. The organic world is proved to react to anthropogenic impacts by means of active microevolutionary processes. The key reaction mechanisms of organisms and transformations of populations and ecosystems under the modified conditions are demonstrated. A review of literature data is used to show how anthropogenic emissions of CO2, NOx, P, toxic compounds and elements increases on a global scale, and how ocean acidification, eutrophication, water withdrawal, etc. are simultaneously enhanced. The methodology of estimating anthropogenic loads is discussed as a scientifically grounded strategy of minimizing anthropogenic impacts on natural ecosystems.

  • Combined assessment of the ecological and geochemical state of
           anthropogenically impacted areas
    • Authors: E. M. Korobova
      Pages: 861 - 871
      Abstract: Based on the theoretical principles of biogeochemistry and evolutionary ecology, the geochemical structure of the modern noosphere was evaluated, and a method was developed for the combined assessment of the ecological and geochemical state of large anthropogenically impacted areas. It was demonstrated that persistent geochemically-induced endemic diseases are direct consequences of the development of human civilization. It was shown by the example of the iodine natural–anthropogenic province that the risk map of geochemically-induced endemic diseases constructed by overlaying map surfaces adequately reflects the modern ecological and geochemical state in any point of the region of interest. The proposed approach is valid for the solution of a wide range of environmental geochemical problems.

      Pages: 872 - 886
      Abstract: This paper addresses the concept of biogeochemical provinces introduced by A.P. Vinogradov and developed by V.V. Kovalsky and other researchers. The importance of this scientific direction was emphasized in the context of the anthropogenic impact on the biosphere. The most general characteristics, genesis, and evolution of biogeochemical provinces were discussed. Special attention was given to modern natural–anthropogenic biogeochemical provinces and anomalies. It was pointed out that this modern and vitally important scientific direction should be further pursued.

  • Landscape–biogeochemical factors of transformation of the Cs-137
           contamination field in the Bryansk region
    • Authors: V. G. Linnik; I. V. Mironenko; N. I. Volkova; A. V. Sokolov
      Pages: 887 - 901
      Abstract: Data are presented on the distribution of Chernobyl-derived 137Cs in different landscapes of the Bryansk region. The role of different landscape-biogeochemical factors in the transformation of the 137Cs contamination field is examined. The distribution of 137Cs in the typical soil catenary junction of predpolessie, predopolje, and opolje landscapes is analyzed. The role of biogeochemical barriers in the 137Cs accumulation is considered. It is revealed that the slope exposure affects the intensity of geochemical migration. In particular, the intensity of lateral migration of 137Cs on the slopes of the southern and southwestern exposure is much higher than that on the slopes of the northern and northeastern exposure. The different types of geochemical lateral structure of landscape are analyzed on the basis of the catenary 137Cs distribution.

  • Formation of organic substances of humus nature and their biospheric
    • Authors: M. I. Dinu
      Pages: 911 - 926
      Abstract: Hypotheses of humus formation on the basis of polymerization and oxidation reactions were considered. The most popular models of several authors and the general understanding of the structural features of natural polymers were analyzed. Multivariate statistical analysis was performed for zonal factors affecting the formation of humic substances. Evolutionary changes in the understanding of the biospheric functions of humus substances were evaluated. Statistical procedures were proposed for the prediction of the physicochemical behavior of humus substances in environments.

  • Essential elements in the organs and tissues of fish depending on the
           freshwater toxicity and physiological state
    • Authors: N. A. Gashkina
      Pages: 927 - 934
      Abstract: The distribution of essential elements (Са, Mg, Na, K, Zn, Cu, Mn, Co) in organs and tissues in basins with different water toxicity is considered by the example of bream Abramis brama L. The models of redistribution of essential elements in the liver and kidney of the fish are developed depending on the physiological state, which is estimated by the concentration of hemoglobin in blood, total disease, and body mass index. It is shown that essential elements can serve as markers of intensity and direction of metabolic processes in the fish organism.

  • Environmental geochemistry of mercury in the area of emissions of the
           Karabashmed copper smelter
    • Authors: Yu. G. Tatsii; V. N. Udachin; P. G. Aminov
      Pages: 935 - 945
      Abstract: Mercury emissions during production of blister copper at the smelter Karabashmed are roughly estimated. The high mercury content in the atmospheric dust, soils, lake sediments of the Karabash geotechnogenic system shows that emissions of the plant are the main source of environmental contamination. The mercury content in soils of residential territory ranges within 0.2–11.4 mg/kg, reaching 15 mg/kg in soils of the impact zone. The maximum mercury content in the bottom sediments of Lake Serebry is 32 mg/kg. The high degree of contamination by other elements of emissions (Cu, Pb, Zn, As, Cd) is also demonstrated. Obtained results justify the need for the instrumental control of mercury in emissions.

      Abstract: Data acquired by monitoring modern biogeochemical cycles in tundra ecosystems in zones impacted by facilities of the gas industry indicate the absence of any perceptible changes in the system surface water–bottom sediments–soil–plants and show that the emitted nitrogen oxides beneficially affect productivity of the lichens and the functioning of the tundra ecosystem as a whole.
