NERC Isotope Geosciences Laboratory

Welcome to the NIGL website

As head of the NERC Isotope Geosciences Laboratory I welcome you to our website. I hope it will give you an impression of the breadth of isotope methods we employ, and the variety of applications including solid earth geoscience, geochronology, pollution, hydrology, climate change, archaeology and forensic/medical studies.

Our funding reflects our user community and includes the Natural Environment Research Council's support to universities, the British Geological Survey, the British Antarctic Survey, and a variety of other clients in government and industry.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss possible collaborations. We will be more than happy to explain what we do, and how you can access our expertise and facilities.
