The noble gases (He, Ne, Ar, Kr and Xe) are unrivalled tracers of the role of ancient and modern fluids in the Earth system.  In addition, the isotopic composition of He and Ne provide unique chronometric control on the evolution of the Earth surface and the uplift history of mountain ranges and sedimentary basins.  The SUERC labs are equipped with state-of the-art magnetic sector and quadrupole mass spectrometers and an array of gas purification systems that allow high precision analysis of noble gases in gases, waters and minerals.
