This paper presents an overview of the most common stable isotopes (H, C, N, O, and S) that are widely used in environmental research. Much attention is given to the atmospheric aerosol particle studies involving stable isotopes. Finally, the experimental results of the carbon stable isotope composition (δ13C) in fuels from various locations (Eastern and Western Europe, China, Japan) are discussed. Additionally, recommendations for future research directions are proposed.
