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

JCU is also a participant or partner in numerous other national facilities to which our researchers have access. A detailed listing of these can be found at: Collaborative Infrastructure.
