We are exceptionally well-equipped with the latest technologies to enable our researchers to stay at the forefront of their fields.
The School houses an impressive range of facilities and services and is involved with a number of collaborative centres of research excellence.
We have a wide range of high-tech facilities for the analysis of rocks, minerals and fluids, for isotope analysis and measurement of the physical properties of rocks. We also have excellent facilities and expertise for scientific computing, and place a strong emphasis on field measurement techniques in ecological, atmospheric and earth sciences.
We have a number of dedicated and 'open' computing laboratories within School premises.
Laboratories are managed by the School which enables us to provide Honours students with personal workspace.
The School hosts and manages a number of National analytical facilities, mainly on behalf of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC).
We are also partners in major facilities at other sites.
