The attainment of an Eoarchean age from a metasomatic BMS suggests that the metasomatic fluid is able to entrain or nucleate on residual BMS.As such, the obtained ages reflect a mixing between the two different Os signatures.The 187Os/188Os analyses of the BMS provide ages 2.5 Ga older than the whole-rock.
The Os composition of the Pt-alloys, combined with their nano-particle nature and the Os dichotomy with the host BMS signifies that the Pt-alloys formed in a HSE-Si-rich melt.
The population has increased rapidly during the past century, and, because of the open-minded, positive approach to life, the country has largely accepted a multicultural society.
As with most countries, the majority of inhabitants tend to live and work in major cities, such as Berlin, Bonn, Munich and Hamburg, with a wide population spread through the smaller towns and the farming community.
The combined results of the Letlhakane and Kaapvaal peridotites indicate that whilst the Re-Os system can be affected by the metasomatic addition of BMS, the combination of HSE and Re-Os at the whole-rock and micro-scale can still resolve geologically significant ages.
Situated in the centre of northern Europe, and becoming unified in 1989, Germany is bordered by nine other countries: France, Switzerland, Austria, the Czech Republic, Poland, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg.
