NCSCM has two dedicated laboratories for Environmental Chemistry, where water and sediment samples collected from different coastal ecosystems are analyzed. This facility focuses on water and sediment quality and is equipped to perform diverse chemical analyses include metals, salts, alkalinity, anions and dissolved organic carbon. This facility maintains high standards of quality control and frequently perform inter calibration exercises. A dedicated weighing balance room, room for laboratory consumables, chemical store room and walk-in-cold room (4ºC) are attached to the wet chemistry laboratory. This national laboratory is equipped with well ventilation systems, environmental controls, laboratory chemical hoods, safety controls and other exhaust devices associated with the equipment.
