[ES_JOBS_NET] Short Course in Stable Isotope Biogeochemistry

     We are once again offering our short course in Stable Isotope
Biogeochemistry this spring (see below). There has already
been strong interest in the course so we recommend that if you are
interested to enroll early. Our lab recently received new
instrumentation and the course will thus emphasis bulk isotope analyses by
elemental analyzer interface, compound specific
isotope analysis as well as isotope analysis by spectroscopic systems. We
look forward to the chance of seeing you in the
spring and please feel free to contact myself or Dr. Peggy Ostrom (
ostrom at msu.edu) with questions.
Best regards,
Nathaniel Ostrom

        Expand your knowledge of stable isotope biogeochemistry in:

·    Ecology

·    Climate change

·    Contaminants

·    Oceanography/Limnology

·    Paleobiology

·    Real-time isotope analysis

·    And more

*Course features**:*

·      Cooperative learning through lecture & laboratory instruction

·      Hands-on experience

·      Discussion of experimental design, sample handling, field techniques

·      Exposure to rapidly developing techniques including:

Automated analysis of O & H isotope values on organic matter

Automated measurement of trace gases (e.g., N2O and CH4)

H2O & N2O isotope measurements via spectroscopic methods

Multi-element (H, C, N, S, O) isotope analysis of bulk organics

Multi-element (H, C, N) molecular-level isotope systematics

·      Exposure to new state-of-the art instrumentation including new
instrumentation by Los Gatos and Isoprime
