A simple, practical methodology for routine VSMOW/SLAP normalization of water samples analyzed by continuous flow methods
Steve Nelson
Normalization of stable isotope data is important for meaningful inter-laboratory comparisons of data, especially for waters. As a result, large, systematic errors may arise in continuous flow applications without correction, whereas normalization to the VSMOW/SLAP scale can facilitate inter-laboratory comparison and can be accomplished by a simple procedure. Delta values for these standards, as analyzed, are plotted against the calibrated values and a linear regression is performed. The resulting equation is applied to unknown samples to achieve the normalization. The one-sigma [1sigma] standard deviation for replicate samples by this normalization method using a Gas Benchll should be
  • IRMS
  • Gas Bench II
  • Calibration method for D and O isotopes
  • Water
