Summary:O, C, and Sr isotopic profiles across the margin of the Waterville Limestone record the results of layer-parallel fluid fluxes caused by the 376 ± 6 m.y. Hallowell pluton. Fluid fluxes and advective-diffusion homogenization are studied, including major element analyses of limestones and pelites. [B.E.L.]
