Laboratory of Stratigraphy

The Lab. of Stratigraphy has expertise in stratigraphic drillings through a wide range of manual corers, in sediment description and preservation. The Lab. facilities include tools for the precise topographical positioning of study sites (total station, laser distance meter) and for sediment sieving for the analysis of their macrobotanical composition and for the use of plant macroremains for 14C dating.
