Croix River, and to eventually build a basin-wide model of the St.
The TAPwaters office is located in the Spring Creek annex and houses two high-end workstations, a 4x5-ft.
A detailed radionuclide and geochemical study has been carried out on recent sediments from the Solent estuarine system, Southern England.
The vertical distributions of a series of radionuclides (210Pb,137Cs,238Pu,239,240Pu,241Am and60Co) have been examined which provide a measure of the rate of sediment accumulation in Southern England estuaries.
Procedures carried out in the laboratory range from sediment loss on ignition, to nutrient analyses of waters and aqueous sediment extracts, Lead-210 dating, and radioisotopic analyses of soils and sediments.
The focus of the laboratory is guided by the scope of staff projects.
The SCWRS offers direct river access, a small fleet of boats, outboard motors and trailers.
