12.748 Introduction to Isotope Chemistry

Class Info

Teaches fundamental aspects of isotope chemistry applied to the ongoing evolution of Earth and its major geochemical reservoirs (core, mantle, oceanic and continental crusts, seawater) in the context of solar system evolution. The course introduces students to nuclear physics, nucleosynthesis, mass spectrometry, isotope fractionation processes and the application of important isotope groups to fundamental processes in Earth's chemical evolution.

This class has no prerequisites.

12.748 will not be offered this semester. It will be instructed by W. Jenkins, J. Hayes and K. Sims (WHOI).

This class counts for a total of 6 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
