Newark, DE: Delaware Geological Survey, University of Delaware
Laboratory analyses of geologic samples are performed on a regular basis at the Delaware Geological Survey (DGS). These analyses produce valuable information used to assist the production of geologic and hydrologic maps and reports. Procedures used by the DGS for analyzing various aspects of geologic samples are described in this manual. The purpose of this manual is to standardize and document these procedures. Care and skill in laboratory operations are essential to the quality of the resulting interpretations.
