WEBINAR: Particle size characterization by laser diffraction analysis in geoscience and soil science - Background, analyses, application, and interpretation

Speaker

Abstract

DATE: March 2, 2017
TIME: 7:00am PT, 10:00am ET, 4:00pm CET

This webinar provides an overview on laser diffraction analysis as a tool to characterize particle size distributions in the field of geoscience and soil science, highlighting its capabilities, significance and potential to obtain improved results and novel scientific findings. It describes methods of optimized and standardized sample collection, preparation and measurement as well as preferable technical peripheral appliances and set-up. For emphasis, selected case studies are presented, further illustrating that a high measurement resolution and high number of detector elements - characteristic features of the Beckman Coulter LS13320 PIDS laser diffraction analyzer - are key for applications in the wide field of geoscience and soil science.

Learning Objectives:

  • Laser diffraction analysis as a tool to characterize particle size distributions in the field of geoscience and soil science
  • Preparation and treatment of geoscience materials for laser diffraction measurements
  • How particle size distributions in sedimentary sequences and soils are crucial for research on sedimentary dynamics, paleoenvironmental and climate evolution, and landscape development
