Urban Environmental Biogeochemistry Laboratory

Towson University is situated in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area, making it ideally located to study environmental issues associated with urbanization. The Urban Environmental Biogeochemistry Laboratory (UEBL) is a collaborative effort between the departments of biology, chemistry, and physics, astronomy, and geosciences, and supports student and faculty research in these departments as well as the Environmental Science Program. The laboratory also welcomes outside users on either a collaborative or a fee basis.

Major laboratory instrumentation includes two inductively coupled plasma – mass spectrometers, a wavelength-dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometer, two high performance liquid chromatographs, an atomic absorption spectrometer that has both flame and furnace capabilities, an ion chromatograph, a gas chromatograph – mass spectrometer, and a nitrogen-carbon analyzer. In addition to their use for research projects, these instruments are an important part of the curriculum in both undergraduate and graduate courses.
