Laboratory Instruments and Field Supplies

Our laboratory instruments include a LI-COR LI7815 trace gas analyzer with a small volume introduction module, an Elementar Vario EL elemental CNS analyzer, and a Thermo Fisher MultiSkan SkyHigh microplate UV-Vis analyzer with wavelength scanning capability. The geochemistry labs adjacent to the Critical Zone Biogeochemistry Laboratory maintain other analytical instruments available for use by students and postdocs (here).

The lab contains two drying ovens, a freezer, a refrigerator, multiple shakers, a ball mill, a jar mill, a water purification system, a benchtop centrifuge (with access to a floor centrifuge next door), multiple sets of sieves, and a full suite of reagents, glassware, and plasticware.

Our field equipment consists of soil carbon dioxide sensors, soil oxygen sensors, soil moisture sensors, campbell scientific datalogers, augers with extensions, soil probes, a bulk density sampling set, a LICOR smartflux soil trace gas flux system, fixed-potential electrodes. The School of Geosciences at the University of Oklahoma maintains a fleet of field vehicles available for use by students for fieldwork.
