Free Webinar on Strontium + Boron in Hydrochemistry

Isobar’s webinar will focus on boron and strontium to identify isotopic variability in the hydrosphere, including identification of pollution sources.

Reconstructing Lead Pollution & Exposure through History

Lead is a naturally occurring element found within the earth’s crust as well as in bodies of water, soil and overlaying plants. The rise and fall of lead use through space and time makes the reconstruction of lead isotopes very interesting for research into past civilizations and present environmental studies.

Strontium & Neodymium Case Study: Connecting Atmospheric Dust to Source Region

The concentration, composition and circulation of atmospheric dust can play an important role in the global radiation budget. Sr-Nd-Hf isotopes are inherent in many geological settings and have been used to track the origin of sediments and dust.

A highlight on tsunami research: Professor Sam Purkis

A study researchering the dynamics of carbonate stratigraphy and vulnerability of sea life to climate change used a combination of radiocarbon and U-Th dating of corals and cemented sediments to date an incipient submarine landslide

Geochemistry: Stable and Radioactive Isotopes

In geochemical research, stable and unstable isotopes are used to understand the chemistry behind natural processes. Isotopes are different forms of a single element, with differing numbers of neutrons within their nucleus, resulting in different atomic masses.

Analysing Water Samples

Stable and radioactive isotopes can be analysed in groundwater and surface water samples in order to assess the magnitude and origin of pollution, rate of pollution infiltration into the environment, and timing of water interactions with the atmosphere.
