The APPLIED ISOTOPE RESEARCH GROUP is devoted to applying isotope geochemistry to further the understanding of a range of geological processes.  Our talented students bring a wealth of new discoveries into the earth sciences, by combining conventional field geology and isotope geochemistry such as B10-B11, Sm-Nd, U-Pb, Lu-Hf and Sr-Sr. Such isotope systems are routinely used to undestrand granitoid petrology, tectonics of Archean and Protezoic terrains, sources and teconic evolution of ancient sedimentary basins, paleoenviromental evolution of carbonatic rocks.

Several reference materials have been developed and distributed to a number of overseas LA-ICP-MS laboratories. These were investigated in collaboration with our partners in Europe (Fernando Corfu, Axel Gerdes, Micheal Widenebeck, Craig Storey, Daniela Rubato), South Africa (Ian Buick) and Canada (Sandra Kamo).

FACILITIES
The AIR-G oversees a number of research facilities in the Department of Geology, including top of the range LA- ICP-MS systems, Electron Microscopes, Sample Prep rooms etc…..
 

 


R
ESEARCH
Four lines of research are currently being developed (details here). The research topics include isotopic and geochemical methods applied to metamorphic, igneous and hydrothermal systems.
Novel Laser Ablation ICP-MS techniques are currently being developed for in-situ isotope and trace element analyses of accessory minerals.
