Isotope Geochemistry

This course explores the use of stable and radioactive isotopes in delineating biogeochemical and geochemical processes in the environment. Emphasis is given to recent advances in the field. Specific topics to be addressed include geochronology, paleothermometry, use of isotopes as tracers, and analytical methods. A team project exercise combining field and laboratory work and presentation of results is required. (Course offered in the fall every other year.)
