Short Course

FIERCE Isotope Short Course

FIERCE run a bi-annual isotope workshop on the analysis of stable and radiogenic isotopes, trace elements in rocks and minerals by laser ablation and solution-based ICP-MS and SIMS targetet at PhD students and post-docs. Presentations comprise technical aspects of instrumentation, methods, and a wide range of applications with an emphasis on geochronology, processes on the early Earth and in the solar system, composition and evolution of oceans and the continental crust.
