Harvard Forest has just acquired a new elemental analyzer for the John G. Torrey Nutrient Laboratory. Purchased with National Science Foundation LTER funding, the Elementar vario MICRO analyzer can be used for measurements of carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur. The new, user-friendly equipment is a nice complement to the Lachat 8500 autoanalyzer in the laboratory and is being used for a variety of ongoing projects requiring soil, plant tissue and foliar analyses. In addition, this machine will be used by faculty, staff and students from several Harvard University Departments, as well as outside institutions.
