Experimental Geoscience Facility
Our Experimental Geoscience Facility is a suite of laboratories equipped to support experimental investigations of physical, chemical and coupled Earth processes.
Many novel developments in geosciences and biology require safe and routine access to 'large-volume' fluid, gas and solid medium pressure vessel systems which operate at high pressure and controlled temperature and gas speciation. Such systems require operation and maintenance in purpose-built, blast-proof environments by experienced personnel.
Our laboratories serve as a core facility for a range of experimental investigations of chemical and physical processes from ambient temperature and pressure to that of deep Earth environments. We have a team of dedicated researchers and staff providing expertise in experimental design and the development and operation of novel experimental equipment.
We support in-house research and provide preparation and experimental laboratories to support experimental geoscience research programs carried out by members of the geoscience community.
