Stable isotopes are natural tracers that are ubiquitous in virtually all organic matter, including petroleum-based accelerants. The development of the gas chromatograph isotope-ratio mass spectrometer (GC-IRMS), primarily for the petroleum industry to trace the subsurface migration of petroleum, generated an instrument that is useful for the high-precision… (More)
