Inorganic Analyses and Carbon

The NWQL conducts a diverse array of methods to measure inorganic constituents at low levels in the environment.  These constituents include nitrogen and phosphorous species, anions, cations, and trace metals. These constituents may be analyzed in water, sediment, or tissue samples by techniques such as colorimetric analysis, ion chromatography, inductively coupled plasma techniques, and more.
