Records of past ocean chemistry provide an integrated history of fundamental Earth processes, including the evolution of its continents, climate, and life. Here, we describe a recent dramatic shift in appreciation of the value and the application of studies of ocean crustal hydrothermal processes, which can be used to both reconstruct records of past ocean chemistry and decipher the past changes to global conditions responsible for any variations in these records. In particular, we describe a recently developed method for the determination of past seawater cation ratios using hydrothermal calcium-carbonate veins precipitated from seawater-derived fluids in the upper ocean crust.

Abstract

Records of past ocean chemistry provide an integrated history of fundamental Earth processes, including the evolution of its continents, climate, and life. Here, we describe a recent dramatic shift in appreciation of the value and the application of studies of ocean crustal hydrothermal processes, which can be used to both reconstruct records of past ocean chemistry and decipher the past changes to global conditions responsible for any variations in these records. In particular, we describe a recently developed method for the determination of past seawater cation ratios using hydrothermal calcium-carbonate veins precipitated from seawater-derived fluids in the upper ocean crust.
