Isotopic analysis of ice cores and biogenic carbonates can be linked to temperature and global sea level variations. Also, clumped-isotope thermometry is attracting growing interest as a very powerful tool for palaeotemperature reconstructions.

Thermo Scientific provides you with the instrumentation to help you investigating (palaeo-)climate. The Thermo Scientific™ 253 Plus™ Gas IRMS combined with our unique peripherals, such as Kiel IV Carbonate Device and GasBench II is the instrument of choice to obtain high precise oxygen and carbon isotope ratio data in ice cores and carbonates.
