Welcome to F-TAES!
The Forum for the Thermal Analysis of Environmental Samples (F-TAES) is designed to provide an active and evolving online community for scientists and practitioners interested in applying thermal analysis techniques to environmental samples.
Thermal analysis techniques such as thermogravimetry and differential scanning calorimetry have been applied successfully to simple sample matrices in the material sciences for decades. Environmental samples consist of highly complex mixtures, and include matrices such as soil, sediment, composts, etc. Recent interest in the application of thermal analysis to the characterization of environmental samples is driven by the demand for rapid and cost-effective methods to supplement more complex and costly characterization methods.
We invite you to explore and contribute to this forum as a means to share your research findings or network with interested colleagues. Feedback concerning the forum is also always welcome.
