Check out our YouTube clip from an episode of the excellent television series about the everchanging planet we live on, Faces of Earth,and see how the Itrax core scanner from Cox Analytical Systems, is used when learning more about the earth´s climate changes.
”This extraordinary scanner allows scientist to examine laminations or layers of sediments in the core, a little thicker than a piece of paper. Previously, sediment cores could be dated in terms of decades, now we can see things that represent months which allows scientists to learn about seasonal conditions among other things.”
No wonder we at Examec are proud to assist.
The Itrax instruments from Cox Analytical Systems find their main fields of application in environmental, geological and climate related applications. These x-ray scanners allow you to scan over samples for a wide range of elements, and at the same time get optical images and density images.
Fields of application include, but are not limited to, Paleoclimatology, Geology, Mining, Oceanography, Limnology, Dendrochronology, Dendrochemistry, Environmental Science and Environmental Forensics
