Novel Isotopes in Climate, Environment and Rocks (NICER) Lab

The newly established NICER Lab is located at Comer building at Columbia's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. Our lab hosts three state-of-the-art mass spectrometers including Nu Plasma3 MC-ICP-MS, Nu Sapphire MC-ICP-MS and Nu TIMS for high precision isotope measurements. Our research focuses on how we can use non-traditional (metal) isotopes much more effectively to explore a vast array of processes about Earth’s formation, mechanisms of climate change and the evolution of life.
