Experienced chemists, excellent results

The ODF Chemistry Laboratory is a dedicated group within STS and also performs analyses for many investigators in the oceanographic community.

Analyses that we perform include dissolved inorganic nutrients, dissolved oxygen and salinity; both at sea in a real-time environment and ashore.  For quotes and/or detailed rate information please contact Susan Becker: 858.534.1903.

Our attention is given to producing world-class reference data. The laboratory has participated in many major oceanographic expeditions over the last 40 years, including GEOSECS, TTO, SAVE, WOCE, JGOFS, CLIVAR and SBI.

Since 2003 the STS/ODF chemistry laboratory has been involved in the development of reference materials for nutrients in seawater along with their implementation in global time series expeditions.
