Modern-day research in climatology and archaeology requires thousands of samples for conclusive datasets, but with Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS)  we have the unique advantage of taking fast, in- situ measurements at low costs. It also allows us to easily replicate data to achieve well-founded and statistically valid results. This is why it is key to further develop it as an alternative to other analyses that are more expensive and time consuming to improve sample numbers and quality of research.
