Paleofire / Charcoal

Starts at $125/sample*

We analyze charcoal in sedimentary records to provide a record of fire in the past. These records best reflect past wildfire when collected from a lake with simple hydrology, but other sites may also be useful. Microscopic charcoal can provide a more regional signal of fire, while macroscopic charcoal is used to reconstruct local fire regimes and individual fire events.

Please contact us for a free consultation to develop a research strategy that addresses your objectives.

 

Baseline rates are subject to additional fees for rush analysis or samples from high biodiversity regions. Discounts apply for academic and large projects with >16 samples. Rates are valid through 12/31/2023
