Part of the Advances in Isotope Geochemistry book series (ADISOTOPE)


The Fe isotope system is used in a variety of Earth and planetary science fields, including high- and low-temperature applications. We have a significant understanding of the controls on Fe isotope fractionation and rates of Fe isotope exchange between different Fe-bearing species. Various studies have characterized Fe isotope fractionation factors and isotope exchange kinetics by empirical methods, including experimental studies and analysis of well-characterized natural samples.
