Center for Isotope Tracers in Earth Science (CITIES)

The UC Irvine Center for Isotope Tracers in Earth Science (CITIES) facility in the School of Physical Sciences houses a range of sophisticated analytical instrumentation. This includes four stable isotope mass spectrometers (IRMS), capable of measuring air, water, soil, plant, and rock samples, and a new High-Resolution Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer (HR-ICP-MS) that is utilized for measuring elemental and isotopic tracers in natural samples.
