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 Research”
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.
