Laboratory of isotope chemostratigraphy and geochronology of sedimentary rocks

The laboratory of isotope chemostratigraphy and geochronology of sedimentary rocks was founded in 2002. The head of the laboratory is professor I.M.Gorohov.

Basic research programs, carried out by the laboratory:

1. Strontium isotope chemostratigraphy in applied to limestones and meta-sedimentary Proterozoic rocks.

2. U-Th-Pb system and age definition of limestones and phosphate sediments in Proterozoic rocks.

3. U-Th-Pb and Rb-Sr systems in limestone and phosphate ores in upper Proterozoic strata.

4. Structure and age of upper Proterozoic glauconites by K-Ar and Rb-Sr methods.

5. Mineralogy, Sm-Nd and Rb-Sr systems of upper Proterozoic mudstones.
