Uni Research Trace Element Lab is a state of the art lab analyzing trace element concentrations from marine calcium carbonates measuring elemental ratios like Mg/Ca. The purpose is to give an accurate estimate of reconstructed ocean temperatures. The laboratory houses preparation facilities and a Agilent 720 ICP-OES with a SPS 3 Autosampler . Researchers and technical staff at the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research in Bergen are able to advise and supervise researchers and students in the process of analyzing foraminiferal calcite for paleoclimatic reconstructions. We have the capacity to undertake academic as well as commercial work and enquiries for analyses are welcome.
