We are committed to sharing our facilities and associated expertise with external academic and industrial collaborators. To discuss your requirements, please contact the staff listed on the pages below.
|Cohen Geochemistry Laboratory
|An integrated laboratory suite designed and built for geochemical research in all areas of environmental geosciences.
|Electron Microscopy Facility
|Leading UK facility for imaging and microanalysis of solid materials at the micron scale.
|Experimental Petrology Laboratory
|We have equipment to study processes such as mineral replacement, kinetics of mineral reactions, melt infiltration, metasomatism including propagation of chemical reactive fronts.
|Fluid Inclusion Laser Ablation ICP-MS Laboratory
|This laboratory is set up for the analysis of fluid inclusions in minerals.
|Our geophysical field equipment can be applied to many subsurface imaging challenges.
|Ice Nucleation Laboratory
|We have a range of instruments and facilities focused on measuring properties of atmospheric aerosol both in the laboratory and the field.
|Part of the Ice Nucleation Laboratory
|Inductively Coupled Plasma Analysis
|Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) and Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES) are analytical techniques used to determine elemental concentrations in liquid samples.
|We design, construct and maintain equipment for use in research and teaching.
|This lab is used for macrofossil and microfossil analysis and imaging.
|This laboratory focuses on the physical properties of rocks, with apparatus for measuring the porosity and permeability of rocks and the measurement of frequency dependent permeability and streaming potential coefficient.
|Rock Mechanics, Engineering Geology and Geotechnical (RMEGG) Laboratories
|Used for a wide range of rock and soil testing activities, collecting, processing, testing and interpreting data related to the geotechnical, mining and petroleum sectors around the world.
|Sorby Environmental Fluid Dynamics Laboratory
|Our facilities enable a wide interdisciplinary community to experiment upon a range of simulated natural processes.
|Thermal Ionisation Mass Spectrometry Laboratory
|We primarily offer Sr-Nd-Pb isotope analyses in a wide range of geological and environmental materials.
|Thin Section Workshop / Rock Polishing Laboratory
|Preparation of high quality optical and polished thin sections, polished blocks, doubly polished wafers, fluid inclusion wafers, grain mounts etc.
|Wolfson Multiphase Flow Laboratory
|We have state-of-the-art facilities for investigating the multi-phase flow properties of fault rocks for predicting the flow of petroleum in the subsurface and measuring the relative permeability, capillary pressure and wettability of fault rocks within petroleum reservoirs.
|X-ray Diffraction and X-ray Fluorescence (XRD/XRF)
|Our XRD and XRF facilities include a preparation laboratory and an instrument laboratory. Analysis is available on a Bruker D8 XRD, a Philips XRD and a portable XRF.
