Here are some of the labs where Project MOBILE analysis are conducted around the world.
Manoel Teixeira da Costa Research Center (CPMTC)
Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (UFMG)
CPMTC is a multi-disciplinary, multi-lab Research Center at Instituto de Geociências, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, Brazil. It is the main hub for the MOBILE Project. Sample preparation, petrography, and field logistics for Project MOBILE will be done here. For more info visit http://www.cpmtc-igc-ufmg.org/ and at facebook.com/cpmtc
Laboratório de Geocronologia
Universidade de Brasília (UnB)
With state-of-the-art Laser Ablation – Induced Coupled Plasma and Thermal Ionisation mass spectrometres, this lab is ready for isotope analysis aiming to constrain both the age of rocks and the process they’ve been through. Some of the rock and mineral dating within Project MOBILE will be conducted here. More info at http://mw.eco.br/ig/labo/geocron/index.htm
Applied Isotope Research (AIR) Laboratory
Universidade Federal de Ouro Preto (UFOP)
Equipped with LA-ICPMS machines, both rock dating and state-of-the-art in-situ isotope analysis are conducted in the AIR lab. Some of the rock dating and isotope analysis within Project MOBILE will be done here. More info at http://www.air.ufop.br/
Centre for Ore Deposit and Earth Sciences (CODES)
University of Tasmania
CODES is the Centre for Ore Deposit and Earth Sciences. Formed in 1989 at the University of Tasmania, the Centre has grown substantially over the years and is now widely regarded as a global leader in ore deposit research. Trace element geochemistry through LA-ICPMS within Project MOBILE will be conducted here. More info at https://www.utas.edu.au/codes.
Laboratory for Mineralogy and Petrology – Ghent University
The Laboratory for Mineralogy and Petrology (MinPet) at Ghent University applies a broad range of analytical techniques on rocks and minerals. Most of the Apatite Fission Track dating within Project MOBILE will be conducted here. More info at https://www.ugent.be/we/geologie/en/research/minpet.
Stable Isotope Laboratory
The EPS Stable Isotope Laboratry is equipped with two CFI-funded large radius gas source mass spectrometers. Sample preparation occurs in separate dry and wet laboratories set for rock preparation and S extraction. Some of the stable isotope analysis within Project MOBILE will be conducted here.
Université du Québec à Montréal
Geotop is an interuniversity research and training centre in geosciences, aiming at understanding Earth dynamics through a systemic approach integrating a unique expertise in isotopic geochemistry et geochronology. It hosts diverse stable and radiogenic isotope facilities where some of the analysis within Project MOBILE will be conducted. More info at https://www.geotop.ca/
Radiogenic and non-traditional isotope geochemistry laboratory
University of Copenhagen
The lab provides access and development space, both for experienced fellows, but also for Ph.D. and post doctoral students, for research in (isotope-) geochemistry, particularly in the fields of magmatic and metamorphic petrology, environmental geochemistry, past and recent climate aspects, archaeometry, biogeoscience, geochronology, just to mention some. Some of the non-traditional isotope analysis within Project MOBILE will be conduceted here.
