At present there is a very extensive and rapidly growing literature on the subject "Isotope Geology". It is well introduced by the following books which also give abundant references to the current literature. K. RANKAMA, Isotope Geology, Pergamon Press, London H. FAUL, Nuclear Geology, Chapman & Hall, London H. : R.D. Russell. Geologic Time Scale , Second Edition, contains contributions from leading scientists who present information in an easy-to-understand format that includes numerous color charts, maps and photographs. The book covers projects such as GTSNext, Earth Time Europe and Chronos, explaining how and why the time scale is being updated and offering expanded coverage of paleontology and Book Edition: 2.
The phenomenal growth of isotope geology during the last 25 years is an impressive indi cation of the success of their efforts. We have now entered into a new phase of development of isotope geology which emphasizes the application of the new tools to the solution of specific problems in the earth and planetary sciences.

Carol Kendall, Eric A. Caldwell, in Isotope Tracers in Catchment Hydrology, Solute isotope biogeochemistry. Isotope Biogeochemistry addresses the application of isotopes of constituents that are dissolved in the water or are carried in the gas phase. Isotopes commonly used in solute isotope biochemistry research include the isotopes of: sulfur (Chapter 15), nitrogen (Chapter It uses the principles of isotope geology to enhance the understanding of appropriate geochemical subject areas. The book also examines the geochemical processes that affect the chemical composition of surface water and that determine its quality for human consumption.

Applications of Radiogenic Isotope Systems to Problems in Geology Paperback – by Heaman, L and Ludden, J N (Eds.) (Author)Manufacturer: Mineralogical Association of Canada.
The application of stable isotope variations to geological problems has focused on the elements of low atomic weight: hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and sulfur. Since the magnitude of ”isotope effects“ is proportional to the relative mass difference between isotopes (Am/m), significant isotopic variations in nature are limited to the light elements.

This requires the active participation of a new breed of geologists who understand the. Covering radiogenic, radioactive, and stable isotopes, this comprehensive text contains five sections that present fundamentals of atomic physics; dating methods for terrestrial and extraterrestrial rocks by means of radiogenic isotopes; geochemistry of radiogenic isotopes; dating by means of U, Th-series and cosmogenic radionuclides; and the fractionation of the stable isotopes of H, C, N, O.
The rhenium–osmium (Re–Os) isotope system occupies a unique position amongst commonly used radiogenic parent–daughter isotope pairs on account of its siderophilic geochemical characteristics. Re and Os are also concentrated from seawater in organic-rich sediments and have been used to obtain absolute ages for the deposition of marine Cited by: Since its initial publication as Principles of Isotope Geology inthis has been the most widely used comprehensive textbook in upper-level isotope geochemistry courses.
