Geochronology involves understanding time in relation to geological events and processes, examining rocks, minerals, fossils, and sediments. Absolute age determination is performed by radiogenic isotope dating methods. Relative age determinations involve paleomagnetism, stable isotope ratio calculations, as well as bio- or paleo-stratigraphy.
Climate change research
The past climate helps us to understand climate change and how it can affect us today. Isotopic analysis of ice cores and biogenic carbonates can be linked to past temperatures and global sea level variations. Also, clumped-isotope thermometry attracts growing interest as a very powerful tool for paleotemperature reconstructions.
Natural variations in the relative abundances of isotopes and elements are used as tools to explain the mechanisms behind geological systems on Earth and in the cosmos. These provide insights into a variety of processes, like the evolution of the Earth's surface over time, its deeper geochemical reservoirs, the evolution of the ocean chemistry, and Earth's climate.
Isotopic signatures in a wide variety of complex organic compounds reveal unique insights in biological and biogeochemical processes. This is true as chemical, physical, and geological processes lead to changes in the natural isotope composition of organic compounds.
Whether that research takes you deeper into the earth, the fossils, the sea or the sky, our comprehensive portfolio of geoscience solutions can power your next breakthrough and enable your next moment of greatness.
