Index of Tools and Subjects

Please use the index on the right to explore the various analyses we perform at PaleoResearch Institute and how these analyses can be used to learn more about your sample.

Some of these analyses are destructive to your sample. Many can only be performed in a certain order. Don't guess! We are happy to discuss your sample with you and help you determine exactly what you need to do to gain the insights you are looking for.

The more information you are able to give us about your samples, sites, and what you ultimately want to know, the better able we are to save you time and money by selecting appropriate analyses. Please contact us if you have any questions.
