Other JCU Facilities

The following links provide information on other JCU facilities and collaborative research infrastructure.

AAC Collaboration

Australian Microscopy and Microanalysis Research Facility (AMMRF)

The AAC is a Linked Laboratory to the AMMRF. Established in 2007 under the Commonwealth Governments National Collaborative Research Strategy (NCRIS), the AMMRF is a joint venture between Australian university-based microscopy and microanalysis centres.

Stable-isotope Facility (JCU-Cairns, Nguma-bada campus)

The stable-isotope facility in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences at JCU-Cairns has the capacity to determine the stable-isotope composition of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, sulphur and hydrogen in microgram quantities of natural and synthetic materials, including solid or liquid samples containing organic matter, inorganic carbonates, water and atmospheric carbon dioxide. The laboratory is currently primarily used for studies of the biogeochemical cycling of carbon and nitrogen, biomass burning, palaeoenvironmental reconstruction, archaeology, ecology and palaeoceanography.
