Analysis

The common chemical water analysis that can be performed on the lab are:

  • Oxygen
  • Conductivity
  • Salinity
  • pH
  • Nitrite nitrogen water tests (by spectrophotometer)
  • Phosphate phosphorous water tests
  • Ammonium nitrogen water tests
  • Chlorophyll
  • Nitrate nitrogen (by spectrophotometer, not SIS)

Additional equipment

There is buckets, glasses, cups, beakers, thermometers and other laboratory tools to use in the lab. Researchers bring most of their material, but some disposable utensils can be offered.
