3 Credits

Contact: Matthieu AMOR

The aim of this optional course is to enable you to master the basic concepts of geochemistry and radioactive nuclide dating.


    • Elemental geochemistry - Stable isotope geochemistry (Element properties. Classifications. Mass balances and elemental fractionations in phase changes. Isotopic fractionations and use of stable isotopes)
    • Radioactive isotope geochemistry / Geochronology (Chronometers: rich and poor systems)
