Basics and Applications of Mössbauer Spectrometry

Iron is one of the major constituents of the earth's crust and is commonly contained in various geochemical and environmental samples such as rocks, soils and sediments. Since iron exists in various chemical states according to the ambient environment, it may serve as a probe for monitoring the chemical changes taking place in the environment and/or for estimating the origin of iron containing samples. In this paper, I introduce the application of 57Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy to the sediments under hypoxia in Tokyo bay, the Antarctic Ocean sediments and the deep‐sea pelagic cherts in order to estimate the sedimentation environments.
