Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary SciencesThe Purdue Stable Isotope Facility houses 4 isotope ratio mass spectrometers (IRMS), each accompanied by peripheral devices for conversion of various compounds into analyzable gases. We also operate some standalone instrumentation for both concentration and isotopic analysis.
Immerse yourself in the middle of our outdoor Rock Display in this virtual reality experience. Currently, we have some of the rock samples labeled such as the petrified wood, Fossilized Ripples, Conglomerate rock from Prophet's Rock area, Fossiliferous limestone from IMI Swayzee Quarry. Other samples will be labeled sometime soon.
A working draft of the Gold Mine Display is up! We will be updating it with more photos and descriptions.
