There are many new facilities that have been built are still in the process of being built in the E&PS Department. Some of the facilities that I am helping to set up and my students would have access to are listed below. Please check back for more updates!
Mineral separation facility and new departmental prep spaces
A brand new zircon mineral separation facility has been established with Dr. Daniel Viete on the first floor of Olin Hall. Dr. Viete will be setting up a LA-ICPMS lab for U-Pb zircon analyses with the next year.
A new microscope lab was recently set up on the third floor of Olin Hall for petrographic, paleontological, and geochronological studies. The space houses 1 Leica 2700 P petrographic microscope, 1 Leica M125 stereoscope with transmitted and reflected light and polarizers, 1 Leica S8 APO stereoscope with goose neck lights, and 2 Leica EZ4 W stereoscopes with reflected light. A Nikon camera attachment fits onto all scopes.
Johns Hopkins owns a field station in near Clear Spring, MD, that is available for teaching and research purposes.
