A new generation Noble Gas Mass Spectrometer Facility for advanced research in the Earth, planetary and environmental sciences

Grant


Scheme


  • Linkage Infrastructure Equipment & Facilities (LIEF)

Abstract


  • noble gas elemental and isotopic variations provide critical temporal and geochemical information on environmental conditions during the geological, biological and climatic evolution of Earth and solar system. We propose to establish a state-of-art facility for noble gas geochemical and chronological research through the purchase of two new generation multi-collector noble gas mass spectrometers. The new facility will significantly enhance and expand current high profile research activities in the fields of climate change, landscape evolution, mass extinction causation, hominid evolution, crust/mantle geodynamics and predictive mineral discovery.
