Micropalaeontology Laboratory / Petroleum Geology Computer Centre


Lab activity

The laboratory is used for educational and scientific research purposes and it covers two areas of geology – petrographic and paleontological analysis of rocks and loose materials and the petroleum geology part for the analysis of the subsurface data. The Laboratory contains equipment for wet sieving, trinoculare loupe, petrographic microscope, two personal computers and one work station.

Equipment for wet sieving of samples

It consists of several sieves with different diameter of holes.

It is used for preparation of samples for microfossil analysis or for preparation of samples of unconsolidated sediments for making thin sections).
