The mission of the University of Houston TIMS Core Facility is to acquire high precision isotopic measurements of archeological, terrestrial and solar system materials in order to address key problems from ancient human history, processes in the Earth’s interior, the Earth’s surface processes, to formation and accretion of terrestrial bodies in the Solar System. Questions such as the timing of shale formation, controls on the evolution of seawater, the nature of oceanic and continental lithosphere generation, formation and differentiation of the Moon, Mars, and Earth are addressed using the Thermal Ionization Mass Spectometer (TIMS) instrument at the University of Houston.
