12.119 Analytical Techniques for Studying Environmental and Geologic Samples


Class Info

Focuses on analytical facilities that are used to determine elemental and isotopic abundances in soils, rocks, minerals, and fluids. Emphasis is on isotopic ratios Sr, Nd, and Pb, whose isotopic ratios can be used for geochronology, and abundances of trace elements such as Rb, Sr, Cu, Cd, Hg, rare-earths, Pb, Th, and U. Analytical techniques include mass spectrometry, emission spectrometry, atomic absorption, neutron activation, and electron microprobe. A major lab project utilizes these techniques to address specific environmental and geologic problems.

This class has no prerequisites.

12.119 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by E. Boyle and T. Grove.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

In the Spring 2015 Subject Evaluations, 12.119 was rated 0.0 out of 7.0. You can find more information at the DSpace@MIT: 12.119 Analytical Techniques for Studying Environmental and Geologic Samples, Spring 2006 site or on the 12.119 Stellar site.
