The foram laboratory is equipped with multiple microscopes with image capture facilities. In this lab postdocs, PhD and MSc students pick and image foraminifera for geochemical, taxonomic, biostratigraphic and evolutionary analyses. The lab is supported by a number of NERC funded research projects
The laboratory collaborates with industry and number of universities worldwide. We have a particularly strong research link with the Department of Earth Sciences at the Natural History Museum in London. Collaborators may work supported by laboratory staff on a cost-sharing basis.
