About the Water Sciences Laboratory

Part of the Robert B. Daugherty Water for Food institute and Nebraska Water Center at the University of Nebraska, the Water Sciences Laboratory provides technical expertise and sophisticated analytical instrumentation for environmental and water related research. Specialized analyses are available for trace organics and stable isotopes, as well as more routine methods for measuring water quality.

Faculty, staff, and students have analyzed thousands of samples at the facility to support water sciences research since it was established in 1990. Specialized instrumentation are available for trace-level organic analyses and stable isotope mass spectrometry, as well as equipment used in more routine analyses of water quality. An experienced and highly-skilled staff ensure high quality results for water and environmental research.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Water Sciences Laboratory is to support environmental and water related research by providing technical services and expertise in analytical and isotopic methods.
