Petrography Lab

  1. Polorizing, reflective, and fluorescent microscopy for petrographic analysis of geologic materials
  2. Cathodoluminescence stage for cement stratigraphy and diagenetic interpretation
  3. Heating and cooling stage on epi-fluorescence microscope for fluid inclusion analysis
  4. Microscope digital cameras - high resolution digital video and images; camera software allows measurements for gain size analysis and phase analysis
  5. Micro-drill system with vacuum sample capture - micron-scale sampling of cements and grains
