Description

to_VSMOW() converts d18O value expressed on the VPDB scale to the VSMOW scale.

Usage

1
to_VSMOW(d18O_VPDB, eq = "IUPAC")

Arguments

d18O_VPDB

d18O values expressed on the VPDB scale (‰).

eq

Equation used for the conversion.

  • "IUPAC" (default): the IUPAC recommended equation listed in Brand et al. (2014) and Kim et al. (2015).

  • "Coplen83": the equation listed in Coplen et al. (1983) and the Hoefs book.

Details

The IUPAC recommended equation to convert between the scales is:

δ^{18}O_{VSMOW} = 1.03092 \times δ^{18}O_{VPDB} + 30.92

Value

Returns the d18O value expressed on the VSMOW scale (‰).
