This capability enables researchers to obtain high-resolution geochemical profiles in the study of environmental change, climate variability and anthropogenic induced changes. It provides data on the variation of density, chemical element composition and magnetic susceptibility profiles in sediment and soil cores, rock cores, wood samples, speleothems, corals and other types of samples.

 

These archives contain important information such as human activity, climate variability, water quality changes, pollution histories, recent geomorphological change, land use change, introduction of invasive species and the occurrence of bushfires.
