The Sedimentary Petrology/Geochemistry Lab

Bruce Railsback, Department of Geology, University of Georgia

In February 2003, the Sedimentary Petrology/Geochemistry Lab moved from its lamentable former home in Barrow Hall on the UGA campus to great new space in Room 202 of the Geology-Geography Building. Here are some clickable pictures of the new lab.
