This is Volume 29 of the Short Course Series produced by the Mineralogical Society of Canada. Published in softback at an attractive price, the book attempts to review established procedures and instrumentation developed for Laser Ablation ICP-MS. Laser Ablation ICP-MS has become an important tool in the Earth Sciences, providing the possibility of measuring the chemical composition of minerals in situ for a wide range of elements at very low concentration levels. The comparatively recent development of magnetic sector, multicollector ICP-MS instruments has expanded the capabilities to measure a wide range of isotopic compositions. High precision isotopic measurements can be...
