We are developing curriculum that uses water isotope data for several upper level geoscience classes. Students run a Picarro Water Isotope Analyzer and analyze their own data in an effort to improve student understanding of course material. We will also be exploring ways to transfer our curricular activities to institutions that do not have isotope analytical capabilities. If you are a student at Kent State or the University of Texas at Arlington, you can become involved in the project by taking one of the classes in which we will use the new curriculum. If you are a faculty member at another university and would like to test our materials (either with your own isotope analyzer or without), please contact us.
