Intercalibrate a Lab

Researchers/laboratories who have not yet participated in an intercalibration exercise but who wish to demonstrate the general ability to measure a specific parameter as part of GEOTRACES are encouraged to seek contact to the respective elemental coordinator, who can provide guidance on the availability of reference materials and the next steps.

Please note that this “lab intercalibration” (demonstrated general ability of a lab to measure a certain parameter on reference materials) is not the same as the intercalibration between GEOTRACES cruises (assessed in a cruise intercalibration report), which will include cruise- specific considerations of sampling and analysis.
