Research Support Facilities
The Bioinorganic and Environmental Analytical Facility (BEAF) - Formerly the Mercury Lab, SERCMLAB, is a recharge center that provides support to research programs in the lab and also has fee-based services for the scientific community both inside and outside the university.
Blue Carbon Analysis Laboratory - Provides teaching, research, and service support for the analysis of plant and soil elements using state-of-the-art analytical equipment and techniques.
CAChE Nutrient Analysis Core Facility - The core provides NELAC-certified analyses of dissolved and total nutrients, dissolved organic carbon (DOC), total organic carbon (TOC) and chlorophyll-a in fresh/salt waters and total P in solids and tissue samples. Additional, non-certified analyses include total N and C, salinity, pH, dissolved oxygen, temperature, turbidity, etc.
Ecotoxicology and Risk Assessment Laboratory - This laboratory offers indoor facilities to maintain clean cultures and conduct aquatic toxicology studies, behavioral studies or swim performance studies in salt water, estuarine water or freshwater. There is also an outdoor area.
Field Operation Center (FOC) - Responsible for the maintenance of SERC's fleet of vehicles, airboats and saltwater boats, FOC keeps
The Periphyton (Algae) Analysis Laboratory - Provides services to evaluate how algae regulate the dynamics of ecosystems and how changes in the abundance of algae species can be used to diagnose sources of environmental change.
Stable Isotope Laboratory (SIL) - Open since the 80s with just one mass spectrometer, the SIL has expanded to include more equipment for researchers and students to use stable
Marine Acoustics Recharge Facility - Through the application of advanced sampling technologies and integrative approaches the facility is able to study conservation-based ecological problems in aquatic systems from a different perspective than most.
