    Project Description

    This proposal will enhance the Monash/VIEPS stable isotope facility by automating a variety of analytical procedures. This will increase our throughput of samples, enable a broader range of analyses to be undertaken, and improve accuracy and precision. The enhanced facility will be state-of-the-art and used to support research in a broad range of fields, including: Hydrogeology (groundwaer resources, salinity, containment studies); Interaction of organic matter with groundwater systems; Cementation and diagenesis in sedimentary basins; Palaeoclimatology; Global carbon cycles; Crustal fuild flow; and Economic geology.
