A method for detecting carbonate in marine solid samples (sediments, corals) by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) coupled to the total attenuated reflectance (ATR) technique is described. Compared to other techniques, the proposed method is not based on the measurement of CO2 evolved by combustion or acidification of the sample, but on the direct measurement of carbonate present in the sample. For this reason, the method by FTIR-ATR spectroscopy does not require any chemical pre… CONTINUE READING
