Analysis of Sediment

Core Analysis 2

The department is well well-equipped for the study of lake and oceanic sediments. Pat Manley, Jeff Munroe and Pete Ryan, along with students, manage a wide array of instruments that analyze the physical properties of recovered sediment. This equipment includes two grain size analyzers, a color spectrophotometer, an LOI analyzer, a pycnometer, a carbon-nitrogen-sulfur analyzer, and a cold room facility to store cores.

More information on each instrument is available through links on the left.
