Change in USGS management for SHRIMP lab

Charlie Bacon retired in October after 39 years with the U.S. Geological Survey in Menlo Park and, for the past 6 years, as Co-Director of the Stanford–USGS SHRIMP lab. Jorge Vazquez is the new Co-Diirector of the SHRIMP lab for USGS. See our "personnel" page for current staffing of the lab. Charlie is staying on with USGS as emeritus scientist, keeping his Menlo Park office, and continuing to work on projects in Alaska and the Cascades.

• Now available online for a non-specialist audience, a new description of the SUMAC SHRIMP-RG and scientific applications:
Bacon, C.R., Grove, M., Vazquez, J.A., and Coble, M.A., 2012, The Stanford-U.S. Geological Survey SHRIMP ion microprobe—a tool for micro-scale chemical and isotopic analysis: U.S. Geological Survey Fact Sheet 2012-3067, 4 pages (Available at http://pubs.usgs.gov/fs/2012/3067/)

ensitive High Resolution Ion Micro Probe Reverse Geometry

The SHRIMP RG is at Stanford University as a result of a partnership between the U.S. Geological Survey and Stanford University School of Earth Sciences. The laboratory is run for the mutual benefit of the two parties with cost and analytical time being shared. The laboratory is also available to outside visitors on a cost recovery basis as time allows.

We are committed to making SHRIMP-RG available to the scientific community and seek projects that require spatially resolved measurements and benefit from SHRIMP-RG's unique combination of high secondary transmission and high mass resolving power.
