For all you laser ablation practitioners, please note the following special session on LA-ICP-MS at the Joint Annual Meeting of the Geological Association of Canada, the Mineralogical Association of Canada, the Society of Economic Geologists and the Society for Geology Applied to Mineral Deposits (GAC/MAC/SEG/SGA) to be held on the campus of the University of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, May 25th to 27th, 2011.
Special session # 11
Elemental and isotopic analysis by LA-ICP-MS: advances and applications
Organizers: Joel Gagnon, Simon Jackson
This session will highlight recent developments in the application of laser ablation inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometry (LA-(MC)-ICP-MS) to elemental and isotopic analysis. Contributions on ablation fundamentals, standards, analytical method development, and application of LA-(MC)-ICP-MS to understanding geologic problems are encouraged.
