CMB Thin Section


The laboratory is fully equipped with two Brot thin section machines in its own thin section production laboratory, and ten polarizing light microscopes with digital imaging capabilities. It houses a large reference collection of thin section slides and soil/sediment blocks from around the world.


For various chemical and physical analyses, our researchers use the existing facilities in the Department of Geography and external laboratories.
