  • Terrestrial laser scanner- Offering superior measurement capability in adverse atmospheric conditions.
  • RV Guiding Light - Our coastal research vessel enables us to better understand marine issues, from sea level rise through coastal erosion and management.
  • Palaeoclimate and climate systems facility- Our Palaeoclimate and climate systems facility can offer high precision trace element and stable isotope analyses in a range of natural materials.
