Chemical Analytical Laboratory
The Coweeta Chemical Analytical Laboratory (CAL) was founded to support studies of watershed-scale ecosystem responses to natural and human disturbances of southeastern forests at the USFS Southern Research Station's Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory. CAL is a first class analytical facility that processes a wide variety of water, soil and plant tissues from the 5,400 acre experimental forest and elsewhere based on prior agreement. This includes samples directly related to the actively funded Coweeta Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) program. The analytical instrumentation available in CAL are listed and summarized here.
Coweeta LTER researchers who wish to submit samples to the CAL for analysis should first read the Coweeta LTER Analytical Lab Policy and QA/QC sample procedures (in Knowledgebase). Researchers can then request sample processing by downloading the analysis request form and submitting it to the CAL Lab Manager, Cindi Brown, as an email attachment.
