Does anyone know of any more recent publications than 1980 containing the fractionation factor for O-18 between water and ice (and any influences that salinity might have)? There are three values given in the Handbook of Environmental Isotope Geochemistry (1980) ranging from 1.00048 to 1.0031 (the former may be a typo error).
I have checked through Georges Beaudoin's list recently sent out to ISOGEOCHEM but I could only find O-18 for water (liquid to gas).
Thanks in advance,

Subject: Stable isotope fractionation factors
In addition to the Excel file posted by Jordi Delago, there is a web
utility that computes stable isotope fractionations online. The
compilation comprises now more than 450 pairs of isotopic species in
the sytems of H, C, O, S. The user interface has also been updated
since the original posting in early January. The program computes the
1000 ln alpha value from the selceted equation and input temperature.
The 1000 ln alpha value is returned with the equation coefficients
and the reference (s). The program uses a general formulation:
1000 ln alpha = A (10^18/T^6) + B (10^12/T^4) + C (10^9/T^3) + D
(10^6/T^2) + E (10^3/T) + F
The URL for the Isotope Fractionation Calculator(IFC) is:
The database for the IFC program is also an Excel file that could be
made available easily either as a posting on the IFC or ISOGEOCHEM
pages. Because the IFC is updated regularly following suggestions
from stable isotope geochemsits, the datafile will have to be updated
Good day everybody!
