Theories of isotope fractionation and applications of light isotopes to solving environmental and hydrologic problems. Lecture topics cover both stable light isotopes (H, O, C, N, S) and radioactive nuclides (H-3, Cl-36, C-14) but with primary emphasis on stable isotopes. Both biological and abiological processes will be discussed. Three hours lecture.
