UCLA Geology

Release Date: July 08, 2011

New Laboratory infrastructure remodel on the UCLA Campus that uses sedimentary record to address fundamental questions about the dynamics of climate change, both past and future. The remodel consisted of the introduction of new utilities to the Laboratory such as chilled water, nitrogen, helium, and oxygen. DLS Builders installed laboratory casework with epoxy tops and sinks with glass piping for acid waste, not to mention lab gas outlets throughout the epoxy countertops. The mass spectrometer was the focal point of the laboratory with new power and transformer requirements installed for the Geologist ever expanding research needs. The Lab’s focus is on applying innovative experimental approaches in order to use the geologic record as a rich laboratory for the study of climate processes.
