"The abundance and isotopic composition of all noble gases are reported in the Wellman chondrite, and the abundance and isotopic composition of xenon and krypton are reported in the gases released by stepwise heating of the Tell and Scurry chondrites. Major changes in the isotopic composition of xenon result from the presence of radiogenic Xe¹²⁹ and from isotopic mass fractionation. The isotopic composition of trapped krypton in the different temperature fractions of the Tell and Scurry chondrites also shows the effect of isotopic fractionation, and there is a covariance in the isotopic composition of xenon with krypton in the manner expected from mass dependent fractionation. The results from this study indicate that simple isotopic fractionation is responsible for many isotopic anomalies which have previously been attributed to nuclear reactions"--Abstract, page ii.
