The GeoAnalytical Lab was recently awarded funding from NSF to buy a new X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) spectrometer. The NSF review panel was particularly enthusiastic about the award, referring to the GeoAnalytical Lab as ‘a valuable national resource’, “the foundational core of geochemical research in the United States’, and ‘a national treasure’ in their reviews of the proposal. The new machine was delivered to the GeoAnalytical Lab on 29 September, and should be fully operational within the next couple of months.
