Researchers at the SCWRS laboratories perform analyses on various environmental samples, with most analyses focused on sediment and water.
The Technical Assistance Program for Watersheds (TAPwaters) is dedicated to the use of geographic information system (GIS) and hydrological modeling technology for the advancement of watershed research and management.
Thus Goldberg (1963) developed the first principles of the Pb. (1972, 1973) adapted this technique to unravel sediment deposition and accumulation records in deep-sea environments.
Serendipitously, they chose to work in a deep basin off California, where an independent and robust age model had already been developed. (1971) extended the use of this technique to lacustrine deposits to reconstruct depositional histories of lake sediment, and maybe more importantly, contaminant inputs and burial.
This equipment is available to researchers on per day, or per sample, basis.
The SCWRS offers specialized analytical equipment such as a Lachat automated ion analyzer, Dionex DX-100 Ion Chromatograph, Phoenix 8000 UV persulfate carbon analyzer (with solids attachment), UV-Vis spectrophotometer and bulk freeze dryer.
