The Neville Public Museum

Geology Club - Understanding Geological Processes Using Stable Isotopes


Guest Speaker: Dr. John Luczaj, UW – Green Bay, NPMGC

Learn how Earth Scientists use stable isotopes of different chemical elements (carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, strontium, lead, sulfur, etc.) to understand geological processes. Examples of how stable isotopes are used will include deciphering Earth’s climate over millions of years using ice cores and fossils, interpreting the paleoecology of Mammoths, and understanding hydrothermal ore deposits.
