The facility supports in-house research, as well as academic and commercial services in palaeoenvironmental research.
The Wolfson Laboratory is located within the School of GeoSciences, at the University of Edinburgh.
We are an established stable isotope laboratory and largely used for palaeoenvironmental research such as the analysis of skeletal carbonates (including annually-banded corals and clam shells, foraminifera, and ostracods) and deep-sea sediments.
The laboratory was partially funded by the Wolfson Foundation when it was set up in 1996. The facility now has two gas source isotope ratio mass spectrometers with automatic carbonate preparation systems.
