Geochemistry of oceanic crust of the North Atlantic, supplement to: Staudigel, Hubert; Hart, Stanley R; Richardson, Stephen H (1981): Alteration of the oceanic crust: processes and timing. Earth and Planetary Science Letters, 52(2), 311-327

87Sr/a6Sr ratios, Sr, K, Rb and Cs contents and the petrology of basalts and secondary phases recovered from deep basement drilling at DSDP Sites 332B, 417A, 417D and 418A show that the oceanic crust alters in four distinct stages characterized by formation of palagonite, smectite and calcite (Stages I, II and III, respectively). Stage IV represents the final compaction of the crust, including a dehydration of the crust without major chemical changes. Isotopic age determinations...
