Chemical Analysis Lab

The Chemical Analysis Lab provides shore-based chemical analyses of plant nutrients and/or dissolved oxygen in seawater, nutrients using automated muli-channel analysis systems and dissolved oxygen by computer controlled amperometric titration of whole flask samples.


3149: Analysis for Nutrients in Open Ocean seawater 
                                            View Fee Details

Analytical charges for nutrients in open-ocean seawater samples range from $15.00 (1 - 3 analyses) to $20.00 (4 - 5 analyses) per sample; depending on the number of nutrients to be determined and the amount of sample handling required. Samples requiring dilution will be charged at the higher rate.

For larger volume samples (ca 200 mL), TCO2 and/or pCO2 determinations using a Li-Cor model LI-6262 CO2 analyzer can be performed. Both analyses can be performed sequentially. Salinity must be known to calculate the carbon system parameters. If the salinity of samples is not known, it can be measured in the laboratory for an additional $3.00.

                                            View Fee Details

Dissolved oxygen in seawater samples is determined by automated Carpenter-Winkler titration. For small numbers of samples (<20), a base fee of 20 samples may apply for setup and testing of the titrator. By prior arrangement, the laboratory can supply pre-calibrated flasks for use in sampling dissolved oxygen and training in the sampling technique. There is no charge for the use of the flasks, but broken flasks must be replaced.
