Carbonate Petroleum and Geochemistry
Office: 105 Noble Research Center
We have state of the art equipment in the Boone Pickens School of Geology for every kind of project in sedimentary petrology. This includes:
1. Basic sample preparation equipment including rock saws, rock crushers, thin sectioning equipment, and polishing equipment.
2. Core storage and analysis facility.
3. Core Lab porosimeter and permeameter.
4. Recently upgraded Philips X-Ray diffractometer (housed in the School of Geology) and a second Rigaku research grade X-Ray diffractometer (housed in the Physics Department).
5. Research grade petrographic microscopes including microscopes equipped for epifluorescence and a computer automated point-counting stage.
6. Microscope mounted CITL M5 cold cathode cathodoluminescence apparatus equipped with a cooled digital camera for low-light photography.
7. Microscope mounted Linkam THMSG 600 heating and cooling stage for fluid inclusion microanalysis.
For sedimentary geochemistry we have a laboratory equipped with microanalytical equipment including:
1. Micro sampling and mineral digestion equipment
2. Ion chromatograph
3. Two gas chromatographs
4. Inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometer (ICP-OES)
5. Isotope ratio mass spectrometer for H, C, N, and O isotopic analyses
Elsewhere on campus we have access to the electron microscope laboratory, which is equipped with both a transmission electron microscope and a field emission environmental scanning electron microscope.
