XRF Scanning

The Large Lakes Observatory at the University of Minnesota-Duluth campus hosts the CSD Facility XRF Core Scanning Facility. This lab provides ITRAX elemental and X-radiographic core scans for the research community. Cores are commonly first processed at the main CSD Facility lab in the Twin Cities and are then transferred in batches by facility staff to/from the XRF Lab in Duluth for the much slower scans on the ITRAX instrument. Data services and archiving are integrated with all other data generated at the CSD Facility.
