We would like to invite you to submit an abstract to the AGU session that we are organizing.
The AGU Meeting 2015 will be held between the 14th and the 18th of December at the Moscone Convention Center, San Francisco, California, USA (Fall Meeting website ). The abstract submission deadline is 5 august 2015.
Session EP018: Innovative Isotope Methods for Characterizing Metal Budgets in the Present and Past Terrestrial and Aquatic Environments
Description: Recent analytical developments of isotope systematics in the past and present terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, have experienced an unprecedented increase. The aim of this session is to explore methods, tracers and research applications using innovative isotope systematics that in fine will provide i) stronger constraints on the origin(s) of elements, ii) a better characterization of the processes controlling their budgets and iii) historical records of variations of their cycles in the Environment (soil, sediment, water, air) at local and global scales.
This session will also focus on the implementation of multi-isotope approaches coupling traditional isotope systematics with new ones to determine the sources, dynamics and behavior of metals in the environment. Contributions concerning technical advances in this field are also welcome.
Studies using stable isotopes of as Li, B, Mg, Ca or toxic heavy metals such as Hg, Cr, Se, Zn, Cu, Pb and Cd are particularly encouraged.
We are looking forward to meeting you in San Francisco
