Isotope Geochemistry Section
The section's main tasks are to conduct research using environmental isotope geochemistry along with other chemical and geological parameters to help resolve environmental problems and to provide high-quality isotope analysis services. On going research projects in our section include studying global climate change, age dating of groundwater, monitoring of landfill contamination, identifying different sources of chloride contamination, and deciphering the origin and fate of nitrate in surface and groundwater. Our service capabilities include radiocarbon (14C) dating, low-level tritium (3H) analysis and, isotopic analyses of carbon (13C/12C), oxygen (18O/16O), hydrogen (D/H), nitrogen (15N/14N), and sulfur (34S/32S).
