Quarternary Laboratory

Multi-user facility for the whole Quaternary group equipped for basic sedimentological analysis, such as bulk density, loss-on-ignition (LOI), magnetic susceptibility, grain size analysis, smear slides, thin-section, and microfossil (diatoms and ostracodes) and macrofossil analysis. We are also able to perform chemical pre-treatments for diatom, pollen, ostracode, isotope and radiocarbon dating analyses.
