The Earth Resources Research and Analysis Facility (TERRA)

The Earth Resources Research and Analysis (TERRA) Facility is housed in the Department of Earth Sciences. TERRA provides chemical and physical analyses utilizing a large variety of instrumentations, including ICP-MS, XRF, XRD, Microprobe, radiogenic isotope, and stable isotope mass spectrometers.

Most laboratories have standard fee-for-service packages that are offered to the geological, archaelogical, environmental and biological communities. Research into new applications and techniques is on-going.

Researchers are encouraged to check out the services available by following the links to the various instruments and by contacting the personnel in charge.
