Abstract:

This report describes procedures for analyzing hydrogen isotope ratios. Hydrogen is separated from liquid water or soil water by reacting the water with heated uranium. An isotope-ratio mass spectrometer determines the atom deuterium in the hydrogen to a precision of or - 0.0075. Ways of upgrading the mass spectrometer to obtain better precision are also discussed.
