Facilities and labs

Beyond the range of specialized, dedicated research laboratories within the department there are a number of other facilities available to researchers.

A shared wet/dirty prep lab, equipped with two fume-hoods, a chemical lab, 10 station senior undergrad/grad computer lab, shared field equipment storage and staging area, teaching and research equipment sign-out room as well as soil shaker, ovens and furnace in our Wet Teaching Lab.

Research equipment varies tremendously, from field equipment such as hand held GPS units to boats and ATVs to state of the art lab-based equipment such as an x-ray densitometer, electronic microscopes, an airborne hyperspectral scanner and advanced analytical software.
