FU - Freie Universität Berlin
The preparation lab offers different preparation methods such as thin-section production, polishes, dye methods, hardening methods and others.
UP - University of Potsdam
The sediment processing laboratory is a space for preparing marine and non-marine sedimentary samples for microscopy and other analyses, which require individual components or fabric specific analysis (e.g., Mass Spectrometry, trace metals, isotope studies…). Preparation methods include separating and picking of biogenic particles, thin section dying techniques, sieving for granulometry, and creating smear slides and acetate peels.
GFZ - German Research Centre for Geosciences
General applications in the soil physics lab comprise soil sample preparation, particle size analysis and estimation of soil moisture content.
