Research in the MicroPalLab. Pictures are from left: I) A foraminifera living on the seafloor. Photo: E. Alve. Microfossils: II) Rhaetipollis germanicus (pollen), III) Rhaetogonyaulax rhaetica (dinoflagelatte cyst). The palynomorphs are Late Triassic in age (ca 210 million years old), and taken from the Kössen Formation, Austria. Photo/Microscopy II/III: W. Kürschner.

The Micropaleontology- and Palynological Lab (MicroPalLab) is used by two research disciplines. The facilities are used both for cultivation, extraction and identification of living and dead seafloor micro-organisms, and to study sedimentary organic matter and palynomorphs (organic walled microfossils) from sedimentary rock samples. The lab is used in research- and teaching activities at the Dept. of Geosciences.
