Regarding textbooks:

I have just finished a textbook entitled 'Principles of
Stable Isotope Geochemistry' to be pubhlished by Prentice
Hall.  It is a general textbook that covers basics with
more emphasis on geochemistry than biochemistry, for
example.  There is a rather extesnive reference list and
questions at the end of each chapter.

The chapters are the following:
1) Introduction
2) Definitions and Terminology
3) Equilibrium Fractionation (theory and application)
4) The Hydrosphere
5) Oceans
6) Oxygen in Carbonates
7) Carbon
8) Low temperature minerals (exclusive of carbonatres)
9) Sulfur
10) Nitrogen
11) Igneous Petrology
11) Metamorphic Petrology
12) Extraterrestrial (meteorites) Geology

I have not got a final date from the publisher for when it
will come out, but it should be soon, hopefully by the
Fall.  If people would like more information, I would be
happy to supply it.
