The QAE service is specialized in the processing and chemical analysis of environmental samples. The service presents two lines of action. On the one hand, it specializes in the analysis of water, sediments and biological material typical of the field of oceanography and marine ecology. On the other, this service has a laboratory specialized in the microchemistry and sclerochronology of fish. This laboratory performs dating (age determinations) and chronological analysis of calcified tissues using both seasonal and daily marks. The validation of the periodicity of these marks is carried out by direct and indirect methods, including the analysis of the elemental composition of the tissues (trace elements and isotopes).
