Nirvana - Non-traditional Isotope Research on Various Advanced Novel Applications

Welcome to NIRVANA!

Sune Nielsen's research group focuses on understanding different processes on Earth and in the Solar System using isotope geochemistry. Our interests span topics such as Cenozoic ocean chemistry and the link to climate change; hydrothermal fluid fluxes through oceanic crust; mantle geochemistry and the link between subduction and mantle plumes; the early Earth and the formation and evolution of continental crust and the mantle; and timing and effects of accretion and core segregation on Earth and other terrestrial planets and asteroids.

We currently measure the isotope ratios of barium, thallium, vanadium, hydrogen, osmium, cadmium, and zinc.
