Sedimentology and palaeontology laboratories

The team's research centre (CEPSAR) at the Open University houses a dedicated suite of laboratories for the storage, preparation and analysis of sedimentary and palaeontological samples. These laboratories include a sediment core splitter, walk-in fridge for core storage, freezer, two extractor hoods for HF acid digestion of samples, a centrifuge, ovens, precision balances, water baths, hot plates, and a pure water supply. The laboratories are located within our Department of Environment, Earth and Ecosystems close to the offices.
