XRF Core Scanner II

XRF Core Scanner I

The X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) Core Scanner is a non-destructive analysis system for relatively fast and closely spaced analysis of major and minor elements by scanning the surface of split sediment cores.

The MARUM is equipped with three XRF Scanners (AVAATECH) which are able to analyze the entire suite of elements between Aluminium (Al) and Uranium (U).

XRF data show a significantly higher signal-to-noise ratio and a more consistent hole-to-hole agreement than standard core logs.
