EOS 335

Isotopes in Natural Sciences

Units: 1.5

Hours: 3-3

Formerly: part of 430

Basic principles controlling isotope distribution, including natural abundances, radiogenic decay, equilibrium and kinetic isotope effects. Applications of the principles in the fields of: Earth history - global processes and chronology; mineralization - diagenesis, catagenesis; hydrogeology and characterization of water and air masses; and biogeochemistry and biological fractionation isotopes.
