Project: Application of Sm-Nd and Lu-Hf isotope systems in geological and archeometric research

01-JAN-11 – 31-DEC-14

Decay of radioactive isotopes causes variations in the isotope ratios of certain elements, like neodymium and falfnium. These can be determined by MC-ICPMS, and help to source and date materials, such as ore deposits in the Central African Copperbelt, magmas erupted in volcanic areassuch as the Aegean Arc and archaeological artefacts, such as hellenistic-roman glass and Bronze Age pottery.
