New Book on Micro-XRF Studies of Sediment Cores published
This month sees publication of a new book on Micro-XRF Studies of Sediment Cores - Applications of a non-destructive tool for the environmental sciences, edited by Ian Croudace (University of Southampton) and Guy Rothwell (BOSCORF). This book is published by Springer in their Developments in Paleoenvironmental Research book series (No. 17)
This is the first book of its kind, dedicated to studies of sediment cores using micro-XRF core scanners, which have revolutionised palaeoenvironmental research over the past two decades. It contains papers discussing use of XRF core scanners in a broad range of studies and presents an in-depth assessment of instrument capability and potential future developments that will increase both precision and speed of analysis. The book includes specific application papers reporting XRF core scanner use in a variety of marine, lacustrine, and pollution studies. In addition, a number of papers examine practical aspects of core scanner usage, data optimisation and calibration and data interpretation.
The book will help both experienced and novice users of XRF core scanners to take full advantage of one of the most powerful geochemical screening tools now available to environmental scientists.

The book is available as a hardback and ebook.
