Enabling scientific discovery through stable isotope analysis
Greenland Ice Core

The IsoLab is a facility specializing in the analysis of light stable isotopes. Our focus has been to use the stable isotopes of hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and sulfur to help elucidate paleo and modern-day environments.

Our core group here at the University of Washington brings together the Departments of Earth and Space Sciences, Atmospheric Sciences, and Biology as well as the interdisciplinary programs: Quaternary Research Center, Astrobiology Program, and Program on Climate Change.


We welcome individuals from all departments and from on or off the University of Washington campus to visit and use our facility. Please see contacts below for more information.
