Sediments Webinar: C14 Dating, U-Th Dating, Sr Analysis

Beta Analytic and its subsidiary Isobar Science will be hosting a FREE webinar focused on sediments, including an overview on applicable dating methods and isotopic analyses.

REGISTER HERE (available on demand)
Live Webinar: December 2, 2021 
Speaker: Maren Pauly, PhD
* Also available with Simplified Chinese subtitles *

What to expect from this webinar:

  • Overview of different types of sediments (marine, terrestrial, lacustrine, aeolian deposits)

  • Different dating methods – Radiocarbon vs Uranium-Thorium

  • Isotopic analyses – strontium, oxygen, carbon, lead, and Sr-Nd-Hf

Dr. Pauly will also talk about Beta Analytic’s recommendations on sample size, collection, handling and submission.

UPDATE: Isobar Science discontinued the Sr-Nd-Hf-Pb service starting January 2024.
