Dear Isogeochemists,

HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Laboratory methods of the Reston Stable Isotope Laboratory are documented in Book 10 of the publication series "Techniques  and Methods in the USGS" and may be of value to the community and are listed below.  Some sections and chapters are still in preparation; nevertheless, these resources should be of value to those setting up a new procedure or setting up a new laboratory.  As procedures are improved, these methods will be updated.  Because each mass spectrometer is different, please use them as guides only.
