The course covers preparation and measurement methods of isotopes including data reduction, distribution of light stable and radiogenic isotopes in nature, changes in isotope values over geologic time scales in some important reservoirs (e.g., sulfur in seawater), mixing models, and an orientation in some applications in geochemistry, petrology and biology.
Autumn term 20 | The course will be given as a distance course. Lectures will be pre-recorded or given directly via Zoom and exercises will be written in detail how to do them. The exercises will also begin with a short introduction about the purpose of the exercise either pre-recorded or direct via Zoom.
The course consists of thirteen 2h lectures and 8 exercises (the programming language R is used in the exercises). The course is given by the Department of Geological Sciences and Natural museum of history (two example lectures).
The course is examined through a written exam placed at the end of the course. Grading takes place according to a seven-point grading scale:
A = Excellent
B = Very good
C = Good
D = Satisfactory
E = Sufficient
Eg = Insufficient
F = Totally insufficient
For passing, a minimum grade of E is required.

Course evaluations allow the possibility to affect and take responsibility for your own learning and gives important information for our work with pedagogical development.
It's important that all students complete the course evaluations after each course, it gives the Department the opportunity to improve the courses' quality.
The course evaluation is composed of a number of questions and specific questions for each course. If you, as a student, want to contribute with more course specific questions you may send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you haven't received the course evaluation for your finished course, or if you have other questions regarding course evaluations at IGV please contact email@example.com.
Course evaluation = student's review of the course
Course report = course leader's reflections about the review
