The Smear Slide Page

The aim of these pages and links is to provide the student of limnogeology with a heretofore missing tool - a guide to the study of components in smear slides.  At this stage our guide has two components:  1) a text description of smear slide analysis, written by Kerry Kelts, with accompanying links to selected images, and 2) the Smear Slide Library, a digital collection of smear slide images collected from our experience at the LRC Core Facility.  Feel free to browse and download any portions of the library.  If you can provide identifications of unknowns or any other suggestions please send your comments to the Smear Slide Librarians at:  schno005@tc.umn.edu.  Enjoy!
