国家同位素地球化学中心

ucd(ncig)国家同位素地球化学中心于2009年1月成立,位于ucd地球科学学院内。该中心促进了来自ucd,三一学院都柏林(tcd)和大学学院软木塞(ucc)以及国际合作者的学者对放射性和重稳定同位素地球化学的跨学科研究。

该中心的仪器最初是通过科学基金会爱尔兰(sfi)设备奖励给来自ucd,ucc和tcd的申请人联合会资助的。 sfi,高等教育机构,环境保护机构,ucd(总统,当时的工程学院,物理和数学科学,当时的地球科学学院,ucd物理学院,生物学和生物学院)提供了额外的资金。环境科学),tcd地质系和ucc生物,地球和环境科学学院。到目前为止,资本设备的总投资额为180万欧元。

The NCIG is a world-class analytical facility comprising of a multiple collector thermal ionisation mass spectrometer (Thermo Scientific Triton) and a high-resolution multiple collector inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometer (Thermo Scientific Neptune), equipped for in situ laser-ablation micro-sampling as well as clean labs and other preparation facilities. It supports the research of three of the School of Geological Science research groups – Geochronology, Petrology & Isotope Geochemistry, Marine & Petroleum Geology and Palaeoclimatology and also contributes significantly to the capacity of UCD’s Earth Sciences Institute, specifically to its Earth Systems and Energy Supply themes.
