Center for Isotope Geochemistry

Analytical Facilities

The Center for Isotope Geochemistry (CIG) labs includes six analytical facilities. These facilities provide state-of-the-art characterization of all types of earth materials for research. The instrumentation and laboratories are integral to CIG’s focus on developing new isotopic ratio methods to study fundamental earth processes, and environmental and energy problems of national interest.

We also work closely with the Cosmochemistry Laboratory (under the direction of Kunihiko Nishiizumi, UC Berkeley’s Space Sciences Laboratory) and Lab for Environmental and Sedimentary Isotope Geochemistry (under the direction of B. Lynn Ingram, UC Berkeley’s Earth and Planetary Science Department).
