A $1 million grant – Stable Isotope Partnership for Ecology, Environment and Energy Research (SIPEEER) – will help Texas A&M develop a unique shared mass spectrometry core facility.

This will be a useful new approach for predicting petroleum maturation and more cost effective exploration and understanding of biogeochemical processes, researchers said, as well as many other discoveries.

Funding was provided by the Texas A&M University Research Development Fund, which makes strategic investments that support the total Texas A&M research enterprise and catalyze new ventures.

The development of this premier capability is possible through the partnership of the Stable Isotopes for Biosphere Science Laboratory, or SIBS, in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the Stable Isotope Geosciences Facility, or SIGF, in the College of Geosciences.
