Trace Inorganic Geochemistry Laboratory

Learn about the inorganic and trace inorganic geochemistry laboratory at the USGS Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center in Santa Cruz, California.

In the inorganic geochemistry lab, we have an ultrapurification water system, CEM MarsX, and two Class-100 laminar air flow benches for sediment-geochemical provenance studies and organic matter sourcing.
