Introduction to Sr Isotope Geochemistry Isobar Science

The element strontium has four naturally occurring isotopes – all are stable: 84 Sr, 86 Sr, 87 Sr, and 88 Sr. Only 87 Sr is radiogenic – produced by the β-decay of 87 Rb with a half-life of 48.8 billion years. In geologic and environmental investigations, the ratio of 87 Sr/ 86 Sr is typically used because of their similar abundances – 7% and 10%, respectively.
