Abstract

Approximate continental palaeotemperatures can be inferred from oxygen and hydrogen isotopic analyses of authigenic silica that precipitated within chert lags on palaeokarst surfaces. Data for two Proterozoic examples suggest continental weathering temperatures that ranged from 30-43°C -from Authors
