ERTH 4560 - Isotope Geochemistry

Fundamentals of Isotope geochemistry as applied to biogeochemical systems in modern and ancient environments. This course covers the principles of both radiogenic and stable isotope distribution, decay, and transfer through earths exchangeable reservoirs. This course will emphasize stable isotopes, equilibrium and kinetic isotope fractionation, distribution, isotope mass balance, and using these systems to track global biogeochemical cycles in the modern environment and in deep time. Meets with ENVE 4560. Students may not receive credit for ERTH 4560 and ENVE 4560.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: CHEM 1100 or permission of instructor; ERTH 1100 recommended but not required.

Cross Listed: ENVE 4560.

Credit Hours: 4
