Use this page to enter data into the Cosmolab database

Field information - Includes images, notes, location, and GPS data. Data must be entered prior to sample processing by the sample collector.

Quartz Preparation - Here we track the progress of samples through the process of quartz extraction from rocks and sediment including grinding, sieving, magnetic separation, acid etching, and purity checking. Before samples can enter the clean lab for extraction, they must be cleared for purity using this page. These data are entered by the person making the quartz.

Quartz ICP data - This is where we enter the ICP data from measurements of solutions derived from the dissolution of small amounts of quartz. These data must be entered by the person making quartz before samples can be cleared for analysis.

Sample ICP data - This is where we enter the ICP data from aliquots of samples taken during quartz dissolution for 10-Be extraction. These data are entered by the person doing the ICP analysis.

Isotopic Analysis - Here we compile the isotopic data resulting from AMS analysis including lab numbers, standards used, sample ratios, beam currents, and blank values. These data are entered by Paul.

In-situ Be Extraction - Here we enter the mass measurements made during the extraction of Be and Al from quartz. These data are entered by the person doing the chemistry.

Meteoric Be Extraction - Here we enter the mass measurements made during the extraction of Be from sediments. These data are entered by the person doing the chemistry.

Sample Publication - This entry form allows us to link samples and their data to publications. These data are entered by the person writing the paper or the lab technician or lab director.

Sample Inventory - Here we record the information about what quantities and grain sizes of already-processed samples remain in storage and how to find this material in our storage facility. These data are entered by the person making the quartz after that process is complete and the samples have been packed for storage.
