A center for innovation in environmental, geological, and archaeological sciences

Archaeology

Radiocarbon AMS, pollen, phytolith, proteins, and plant identification

Geology

Single sample or entire core analysis using XRF, FTIR, and XRD

Agriculture

Analyze or map nutrients and toxins in plants, soils, and fertilizers

PaleoResearch Institute

PaleoResearch Institute specializes in paleoenvironmental, archaeobotanic, and radiocarbon dating services. This includes radiocarbon dating, palynology, geology, and archaeometry. We don't just send a spreadsheet of results, but provide interpretation for your results. For a complete list and descriptions of all our available services, please visit our services index


Radiocarbon Dating

By carefully measuring the decay of 14C relative to stable carbon isotopes, we can infer the age of an organic sample

Palynology

Analysis of pollen isn't just a science, it's an art. Our experienced palynologists can reconstruct the vegetation history of your site

Climate Modelling

Subtle clues in isotopes, pollen, and sediment mortphology allows us to reconstruct the climate of the past

Plant Analysis

From macrobotanicals, wood identification, and even fiber analysis can help environmental reconstruction

XRF

We employ non-destructive custom-calibrated X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis of single samples and geologic cores

FTIR

Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectrospopy, particularly of the mid-range wavelengths, helps us look at biologicaly relevant molecules

Protein

Protein analysis will reveal how artifacts were used, and possibly what animals/plants were exploited

Contextual Results

With all of our services, we provide the context needed to interpret the results with client-based reports and background information

Advanced Services

You can send your samples. Or we can send a person.

The reality of advanced analysis is that it isn't enough to get a spreadsheet - you need time and attention. We can send our experts on site for XRF analysis in-situe of sites and fields. We're a phone call away.
