Water Quality

Water quality laboratories in O'Brien Hall are equipped with state of the art instrumentation for quantifying environmental contaminants in water and soils. These labs are configured for:

  • organic and inorganic chemical analysis in air, water, and soils
  • process analysis for aerosol dynamics
  • microbial and molecular biological analysis of soils, waters and sludges
  • biological kinetics
  • photochemical reactions
  • mass transfer rates in porous media
  • computational facilities to support environmental transport and fate modeling
