Geochemical Significance of Diagenetic Reactions in Ocean Sediments: An Evaluation of Interstitial Water Data (Extended Abstract)

By J M Gieskes and J R Lawrence


The gradients of dissolved calcium and magnesium, as well as those of delta super(18)O of the interstitial waters in deep sea sediments imply fluxes of material from layer 2 (oceanic basalts) into layer 1 (sediments) and vice versa. Especially the flux of H sub(2) super(18)O into layer 2 is significant and allows an estimate of the degree of alteration of layer 2 of the oceanic crust
