Abstract

Recent advances in mass spectrometry have allowed isotope scientists
to precisely determine stable isotope variations in the metallic
elements. Biologically infl uenced and truly inorganic isotope
fractionation processes have been demonstrated over the mass range of
metals. This Elements issue provides an overview of the application of metal
stable isotopes to low-temperature systems, which extend across the borders
of several science disciplines: geology, hydrology, biology, environmental
science, and biomedicine. Information on instrumentation, fractionation
processes, data-reporting terminology, and reference materials presented
here will help the reader to better understand this rapidly evolving field.
