Radiogenic and Non-traditional Isotopes: Analytical Methods and Applications, University Frankfurt

This workshop focused on the analyses of stable and radiogenic isotopes (e.g., Li, B, Mg, Fe, Sr, Mo, Nd, Hf, W, U-Th-Pb, U) in rocks and minerals by laser ablation and solution-based ICP-MS and SIMS. Presentations (e.g., Stefan Weyer, Axel Schmitt, Wolfgang Müller, Horst Marshall, Martin Oeser-Rabe, Ellis Hoffman etc.) comprised technical aspects about instrumentation and methods and a wide range of applications with emphasis on geochronology, processes on early Earth and in the solar system, composition and evolution of oceans and continental crust. A visit of the laboratories was also part of the program.
