Geochemistry Lab

Major goal of the Geochemistry Lab activity is determination of chemical composition of different solids (e.g. minerals, rocks, soils, archaeological artefacts, cements, concretes) and fluids (e.g. water, crude oils) and, subsequently, evaluation of the received data. Routine analyses run on prepared samples as pressed and fused pellets, thin sections, polished thin sections and slabs, separated minerals or aggregates, broken or etched non-planar surface specimens, solutions, suspensions. The obtained data can be used for explorations in the fields of igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rock geochemistry, organic and environmental geochemistry as well.
