Facilities For Research & Teaching
The Geosciences Department at Texas Tech houses a number of state-of-the-art facilities used by faculty and students for research and teaching.
Digital Microscopy Lab
Laboratory for Stable Isotope Geochemistry.
Related & Collaborative University Facilities
In addition to the 'in-house' facilities noted above, various faculty and students within the Geosciences Department regularly utilize other facilities within the university, inlcuding:
MRI-Petrophysical Applications Center
The MRI Petrophysical Applications Center provides magnetic resonance and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) capabilities for oil industry R&D. In addition, it is well suited for studying the internal structures in a wide variety of geologic, industrial and engineering materials and for supporting research in fluidized and dispersed phase systems.
Wind Science & Engineering Research Center
In collaboration with scientists in Civil Engineering, members of the Geoscience Faculty utilize the Wind Science & Engineering Research Center to study the effects and hazards of severe storms.
The Imaging Center
TEM, SEM, EBSD and related instruments for image analysis and microscopy.
