In March, Heather Wright – a member of our technical support team – conducted FlowCam training at the University of Maine, Orono (UMO) for a team of researchers including Dr. Jasmine Saros and Dr. Andrei Kurbatov. Both Kurbatov and Saros work at the Sawyer Environmental Chemistry Center and conduct research to identify climatic change.
When preparing for trainings, our technical team always discusses the end-user application objectives. We also emphasize the importance of having your field or experimental samples on hand during the training. On this recent training at UMO, we worked with samples ranging from 50 year old pollen grains, preserved phytoplankton and microzooplankton, and tephra particles from volcanic ash that was trapped inside ice cores.Read More
