Geochemistry of altered phases, basalts and sediments of ODP Site 136-843

D Guy Waggoner
40Ar-39Ar incremental heating experiments on a relatively unaltered basalt from Site 843 yield a crystallization age of 110 ± 2 Ma for the central Pacific Ocean igneous basement near Hawaii. Previous estimates of the age of the basement inferred by indirect methods and from radiometric dates of the South Hawaiian Seamounts are too young by 20-30 m.y. Phyllosilicate alteration minerals from veins in the Site 843 basalts define a Rb/Sr isochron with an age of...
