The Organic and Stable Isotope Biogeochemistry Laboratory (OSIBL) is a service center specializing in the analysis of organic compound abundance, compound-specific H and C isotopes, organic matter %C, %N, and C and N isotopes, and H and O isotopes in water.
We are equipped to extract, process and analyze organic compounds from a variety of sample matrices including soil, lacustrine, marine, or loess sediments, rocks, and plant tissues. We are also equipped to analyze water H and O isotopes from a variety of sample matrices including soil, sediments, and tissues.
Our research focus is on reconstructing Quaternary paleoclimate in the Arctic and modern biogeochemical cycling, but we can work with any research applications that can utilize our instrumentation.
