Groundwater and Paleoclimate - Noble Gas Lab


Our noble gas laboratory is one of only a handful of laboratories worldwide that can analyse all stable noble gases dissolved in water samples. Below you can find a few pictures and a link to a technical description of the system.

Technical description of the system


Noble Gas Mass Spectrometer (GV 5400He)

The GV 5400He Noble Gas Mass Spectrometer (see picture) was installed in 2004.


The associated fully automated preparation line for water and gas samples (see picture) was put into operation in 2005.


In addition we own a MM3000 noble gas mass spectrometer (see picture) for the analysis of helium isotopes and tritium by the 3He-ingrowth method (currently out of service).
