The hydrogeology and soils lab includes:
- Dionex dual ICS 1000
- OI Analytical Aurora 1030 TOC
- 2 Dell computers
- Millipore Elix / Gradient water purification systems
- Analytical balances
- Soils moisture probes
- LaCrosse Weather station
- Mini meteorological station
- Velocity meter
- Solinst water level measuring tape
