GCH 438 - Isotope Geochemistry




A quantitative examination of radiogenic and stable isotopes that balances theoretical and applied aspects of the science. Topics that are covered include radioactive decay, geochronology of primarily long-lived isotope systems, isochron systematics, model ages, radiogenic isotope tracers, equilibrium and kinetic stable isotope fractionation, and the evolution of analytical techniques.

Prerequisite: GEO 310 or CHE 451 or instructor permission
Offered: Not on a regular basis
