Dear Colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the session “Advances in  
Stable Isotope Geochemistry in Energy and Environmental Research” that  
will be part of GeoCanada 2010 held from May 10-14, 2010, in Calgary,  
Alberta, Canada (see: The abstract  
submission site is now open (see: 
  and abstract submission deadline is January 15, 2010.

Session title:
“Advances in Stable Isotope Geochemistry in Energy and Environmental  

Session description:
Stable isotope techniques used in concert with other geological,  
geochemical and hydrogeological approaches have the potential to  
provide unique insights into a wide variety of energy-related and  
environmental issues. This session will feature contributions focusing  
on innovative applications of stable isotopes to energy and  
environmental research. The session will cover applications using  
traditional (H, C, N, O, S, Sr) and non-traditional (B, Cl, Ca, Fe,  
Ni, Br, Hg among others) isotopes as well as mass-independent isotope  
fractionation studies.
