Stable isotope analytics

NIWA uses stable isotope analytics, using chemical elements that don't decay over time, to help understand environmental processes through time such as food chains, water flows and climate change.

  • Stable Isotope Analytical Facility

    NIWA's state of the art Stable Isotope Mass Spectrometry (IRMS) facility supports our research and commercial analyses, providing tailor-made solutions for various environmental and atmospheric questions.
  • Compound Specific Isotope Analysis (CSIA)

    Compound specific stable isotope analysis techniques are an increasingly useful tool to address many ecological and environmental research questions.
