NERC Isotope Geosciences Laboratory (NIGL)

NIGL is a stable and radiogenic isotope laboratory facility focusing on Environmental Change, Chronology, and Science-based Archaeology, in a collaborative research environment. NIGL comprises two groups of analytical facilities: 1. Stable Isotope Facility: isotope analysis of waters, carbonates, biogenic silica, phosphates, biomass in both organic and inorganic materials for the isotopes of H, C, N, O, S, and Si by gas-source stable isotope mass spectrometry. 2. Radiogenic Isotope Facility: high precision U-Th-Pb dating using TIMS, and in situ dating using laser-ablation and plasma ionisation mass spectrometry (PIMS); U-Series dating; high precision isotope (U, Pb, Hf, Nd, Sr) analysis of solids and solutions using both solution and laser-ablation PIMS, and TIMS.
