Natural Variations of Stable Chlorine and Bromine Isotopes on Earth

  • Hans EggenkampEmail author
Part of the Advances in Isotope Geochemistry book series (ADISOTOPE)


Chlorine and bromine on earth are distributed quite systematically in the large geological reservoirs. Due to their chemical character, both elements are primarily concentrated in the fluid phase of any system and as a consequence, they are highly concentrated in the oceans on earth.
