The University of Calgary (UCalgary) has taken delivery of the LISST-200X particle size analyzer at their Department of Geoscience.  Associate Professor; Director of Environmental Science Programs, Dr. Dan Shugar will be using the instrument for quantifying sediment transport in glaciated mountain environments across western North America.  Sequoia’s local distributor, Hoskin Scientific, supported the effort and has worked for years with UCalgary on a variety of instrument related sales.  The LISST-200X is designed for providing in situ particle measurements in both fresh and salt water environments, learn more here!
