Isotope Geochemistry

"The answer lies in a slightly obscure but ingenious field known as isotope geochemistry."
Bill Bryson

Faculty and Research Scientists

A large number of Faculty and Research Scientists as well as many graduate students are actively engaged in research in isotope geochemistry in the Department of Geological Sciences.  Research interests and areas of expertise cover a broad range of the earth sciences and involves much interdisciplinary collaboration.
