It is equipped for standard analysis of soil, sediment, water, and plant materials. Standard procedures include particle size analysis by the pipette, hydrometer, and sieve methods, organic carbon analysis by combustion and wet oxidation methods, carbonate mineral analysis with a Chittick apparatus, standard mineral analyses with a petrographic microscope, and total or partial extraction methods for elemental analysis of water, sediment, and plant material.

The Geomorphology Laboratory also houses computers linked to a digital imaging system for morphological measurements of microscopic and macroscopic images.

Field equipment stored in the Geomorphology Laboratory includes surveying equipment (digital theodilites), soil coring devices, and automated water sampling and monitoring devices.
