Soil and Water Analysis

Our labs specialize in the preparation and analysis of soil and water samples from disturbed, mitigated and reclaimed sites. Laboratory analyses include basic soil characterization such as pH, electrical conductivity, particle size analysis, water holding capacity, cation exchange capacity, total organic carbon (Walkley-Black), total carbon and nitrogen (combustion), as well as peroxide potential analysis, calcium carbonate equivalency, total metals (microwave digestion) and extractable nitrogen.  We analyze water samples for nitrate, ammonium, ortho-phosphorus, metals (cations and oxyanions) and dissolved organic carbon (DOC). We also offer greenhouse experimental and bioassay support.
