AbstractGeochemical analysis of sediment samples can be used to characterize inter- and intra-lake variability and provide insight into lake chemistry, depositional processes and contamination sources. The spatial coverage of geochemical studies is restricted by the cost, sample volume required, and destructive nature of inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). Core scanners that incorporate x-ray fluorescence spectrometry (XRF), such as the Cox ITRAX-XRF core scanner, have high through-put and can be used to non-destructively produce high-quality geochemical datasets for low cost. Here we describe a new analysis vessel that enables the generation of rapid, non-destructive ITRAX-XRF analysis of discrete sediment samples.
