The sediment facilities of EARTHLAB offer state-of-the-art instrumentation for the analysis of sediments. Infrastructure includes a wide range of instruments, enabling e.g. non-destructive ultra-high-resolution scanning as well as high-precision discrete sampling of sediments. Research in EARTHLAB sediment is geared towards paleoclimatology, environmental change and geohazards, mostly sampling lacustrine and marine cores as well as terrestrial sediment sections.
