Reporting small Delta 17O values: existing definitions and concepts.

Abstract

The three-isotope tracer Delta(17)O is increasingly used in atmospheric chemistry and other research areas. Thanks to the development of isotope-ratio mass spectrometry (IRMS), delta(17)O and delta(18)O can be determined with a precision of a few 0.01 per thousand, and values for Delta(17)O may be calculated with similar precision. However, interpreting… (More)
