Characterization of boron incorporation and speciation in calcite and aragonite from co-precipitation experiments under controlled pH, temperature and precipitation rate

Abstract

About 20 years ago, the boron isotopic composition of marine carbonates was proposed as a proxy of ancient seawater pH. Since that time, a large body of studies has used boron isotopes in carbonates to reconstruct seawater paleo-pH and atmospheric paleo-CO2 concentration. To date, however, no systematic investigation of the physicochemical parameters that control boron incorporation in calcite and aragonite (pH, temperature, precipitation rate, etc.) has been performed. To fill this gap, we have experimentally investigated the inorganic co-precipitation of boron with calcite and aragonite at 5 and 25 °C in the presence and absence of seed crystals and over the pHNBS range 7.4 < pH < 9.5 in 0.1 or 0.2 M NaCl solutions. The boron partition coefficient, DB, between CaCO3 and the fluid is defined as:
