The West Australian Biogeochemistry Centre (WABC) is housed at UWA and brings together a critical mass of researchers in stable isotope science, and its application to environmental and ecological problems in both terrestrial and marine environments. 

Led by Dr Pauline Grierson, WABC is a core facility of the WA John de Laeter Centre of Mass Spectrometry and provides a range of analytical and interpretive services to researches and industry, particularly the resources sector. .

With its  four isotope ratio mass spectrometers (IRMS) and  access to  a wide range of further  analytical instrumentation, WABC is equipped to carry our a sophisticated analyses, central to a wide ragne of studies including: aging and characterising of geological materials; identification of the sources of major pollutants; organic matter decomposition in soils and sediments.
