Analytical Geochemistry Research Laboratory

The Analytical Geochemistry Research Laboratory in the newly renovated Gardiner Hall at New Mexico State University provides for a variety of research topics ranging from super volcano eruptions and detrital zircon studies to highway materials and precious gem analysis. Field based research is an important and key component in many geological studies, and analytical work can be a useful supplement. Other studies that do not focus on field related research greatly benefit from the new facilities in Gardiner Hall. The new facilities have also provided opportunities for collaborations with teachers, students, and other employees from many different institutions around the United States.
