ISOTOPE GEOCHEMISTRY LABORATORY
geochronology - isotopes - tectonics - cyberinfrastructure
U-Pb ages on zircon and other minerals
Three mass spectrometers for geochronologic and isotopic analyses
Dust and metal free laboratory space with fully exhausted laminar flow hoods
Crushing and milling for processing rocks, then other equipment for separation of heavy minerals
IGL has a long legacy of isotope geochronology from pioneering work in the applications of Rb-Sr and U-Pb systems of Van Schmus, Bickford, and Bowring (KU Ph.D.), followed by work of other IGL researchers in geochronology, thermochronology, and isotopes.
