Stable Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry

dual inlet MAT 253 + gasbench

Kiel IV carbonate device


continuous flow Delta V


The Stable Isotope Laboratory has recently undergone extensive renovation (2008). The new lab facility will house two, new state-of-the-science, Thermo-Finnigan isotope ratio mass spectrometers: 1) dual inlet MAT 253 with a Kiel IV carbonate device, 2) continuous flow Delta V. Routine analyses of carbonates (18O, 13C; Kiel, Gasbench), water (HD and 18O; TC/EA, Gasbench), organic material (C and N, EA; H and O TC/EA), and DIC (Gasbench) will be performed. The new instruments and new facility will build on the long tradition of supporting geoscience research in the Department to students, faculty and researchers in the UT community and beyond. The new stable isotope lab is under the supervision of Dr. Terry Quinn, who joined the Department (and Institute for Geophysics) in August, 2006.
