The second edition of the useful survey Isotopes in the Earth Sciences. Part 1 introduces isotopic chemistry and examines mass spectroscopic methods; Part 2 deals with radiometric dating methods. Part 3 examines the importance of isotopes in climate - environmental studies, an increasingly significant area of research. The last part looks at extra-terrestrial matter, geothermometry and the isotopic geochemistry of the Earth's lithosphere.
Unstable isotopes and radioactive dating: U/Th/Pb, U series, Rb/Sr, K/Ar, rare earth elements, Rn/Os, K/Ca, radiocarbon, tritium, radiation damage; stable isotopes: atmospheric, hydrospheric, biospheric-carbon, lithospheric, isotopes and climatology.
