We develop useful science that tackles critical questions about present and past environment and climate. Our activities promote training and learning as well as public understanding of this science.

Toward this goal, we recently took delivery of a Nu Instruments Panorama, an ultra-high resolution gas-source mass spectrometer designed to undertake the measurement of rare light stable isotope abundances. We will use measurements made with the Panorama to constrain physical and chemical processes operating today and in the past, providing needed constraints to broader science and society.
