MSCI 655 - Stable Isotope Biogeochemistry

Fall, even years (2) Anderson, Bronk

This course is a survey of applications that use stable isotopes of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and sulfur to define elemental flow through experimental and natural systems. Topics include stable isotope theory; tracer versus natural abundance techniques; quantifying processes of elemental uptake, regeneration, and respiration; and defining trophic relationships using multiple tracers.
