The Stable Isotope Biogeochemistry Laboratory (SIBL) is focused on the analysis of modern, historic and palaeontological systems through the use of stable isotope ratios, and in particular, Carbon, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Hydrogen. Due to the vast number of applications the analysis of stable isotope ratios, research conducted in the laboratory crosses many disciplines, such as Archaeology, Biology, Botany, Chemistry, Earth Science, Ecosystem Science, Forensics, Hydrology, Palaeontology, Physical Geography, Soil Science, and Zoology. The Group is extensively involved in regional, national and international science and collaborates with the community, industry and academia. SIBL is inherently connected with the Northern Centre for Isotopic and Elemental Tracing (NCIET), where many collaborative projects involve both labs, their instrumentation and expertise.
