Stable Isotope Geosciences Facility

The Stable Isotope Geosciences Facility at Texas A&M University was established to provide the highest quality light element isotopic measurements for the advancement of the research of faculty, staff, and students at TAMU and within the broader scientific community. The facility provides a training resource on instruments and preparation equipment for students and researchers within the College of Geosciences. With up-to-date isotope technologies and experienced staff, SIGF is continually striving to make TAMU a national leader for stable isotopic research.
