The value of CHONS isotopic measurements of major compounds as probes of planetary origin, evolution, and habitability

Isotopic ratios of CHONS elements address high priority science themes, including biosignature detection, solar system formation, atmospheric evolution, and the presence of water. Investment in technology development to enable such measurements and laboratory studies to provide context will advance planetary science in the coming decade.
