ICTA - Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals

L’Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals de la Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (ICTA-UAB) és un centre multidisciplinar que promou la recerca acadèmica i els estudis de postgrau en ciències ambientals. El seu objectiu és millorar la comprensió del canvi ambiental global i la naturalesa i les causes dels problemes ambientals. Estudia les polítiques, estratègies i tecnologies per afavorir la transició a un model social i econòmic sostenible.

L’ICTA-UAB aborda els principals reptes ambientals i de sostenibilitat relacionats amb el canvi global i climàtic antropogènic. Els investigadors de l’ICTA-UAB desenvolupen recerca avançada en àrees especifiques de la ciència ambiental a partir de tres àrees generals: “Ciències de la Terra i la Vida”, “Ciències Socials i Ambientals” i “Tecnologia, medi ambient i societat”.

Unitat d’Excel.lència María de Maeztu L’ICTA-UAB és l’únic centre de recerca en ciències ambientals distingit com a Unitat d’Excel.lència pel Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad (MINECO) del Gobierno de España, el més destacat reconeixement en recerca científica a España.

Boron (B) isotopes are widely used in the Earth sciences to trace processes ranging from slab recycling in the mantle to changes in ocean pH and atmospheric CO2. Boron isotope analysis is increasingly achieved by multi-collector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry, which requires separation of B from the sample matrix. [...]
