  Information - GMPV33 Noble gas isotope geochemistry: 25 years on from Ozima and Podosek (co-sponsored by EAG, co-listed in IG)

Event Information
2008 is the 25th anniversary of the publication of the first edition of “Noble Gas Geochemistry” by Prof. Minoru Ozima and Prof. Frank Podosek. The book rapidly became the noble gas “bible” and the latest edition remains a must-have text for researchers in the field. The use of noble gas isotopes as chronometers and tracers has expanded to an impressively wide range of geoscience disciplines in the intervening years. They are now used routinely as chronometers of, for example, rock exposure at Earth’s surface, cooling of rocks through the shallow crust and the age of groundwaters, and as tracers of, for example, delivery of extraterrestrial dust to Earth, magma sources, ocean circulation and nuclear tests. New developments in static gas mass spectrometry are expanding further the applicability of the technique and the future is bright.
This session is dedicated to 25 years of ‘Ozima and Podosek’ and aims to bring together researchers from the field of noble gas isotope geochemistry sensu lato. The session will highlight the latest science advances and technical developments with particular emphasis on new applications in the study of noble gas isotopes in Earth materials.
