Sedimentary Laboratory

The Sedimentary Laboratory is a centre for receiving marine sedimentary materials, carrying out non-destructive scanning techniques such as X-ray fluorescence, spectrophotometry, and magnetic susceptibility; splitting and cutting marine and other cores, and preparing samples for Mass Spectrometry, trace metal  and other analyses based on the use of discrete samples. We also measure the particle sizes found in marine sedimentary deposits, as a means of investigating parameters such as changes in oceanic current speeds.
