The EAS Department houses a Weather/Remote Sensing Laboratory with computer links to Unidata. The IBM RISC 6000 and Sun Sparc workstations permit access to national data banks and are networked via direct satellite link to Internet sources.
The Department also maintains well equipped hydrology, geophysics and geochemistry laboratories. Equipment includes Philips x-ray fluorescence and x-ray diffraction stations. Thermo flame and graphite furnace atomic bsorption facilities, a Thermo Finnigin Trace DSQ Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry station with chemical ionization and autosampler, a Glas-Col Soxhlet extraction system, Dionex Suymmit HPLC with gradient pump and Uv detector, a Kodak Image Station 2000MM Multi-Modal high performance digital imaging system and related equipment for quantitative hydrology.
The High Pressure Laboratory includes a 0-100,000 PSI Harwood Intensifier, a Honeywell temperature-regulating systems and a petrographic microscope laboratory. Additional equipment includes access to a ZEISS SEM with a Princeton Gammatech Energy Dispersive Analysis System and Phillips Transmission Electron Microscopes.
The Geophysics Laboratory is equipped with a 24-channel Strataview engineering seismograph system, an EM-31 electromagnetic ground conductivity meter, a Syscal Kid Switch 24 automated resistivity system, an older Soiltest resistivity meter, a Worden student gravimeter, and a GSM-19T proton recession magnetometer. EAS maintains a cloud laboratory at Steamboat Springs, Colorado that has been the resource for student meteorology projects for the last two decades.
