Resources

The group has excellent facilities including

  • Geophysics laboratory & store
  • Excellent inventory of geophysical surveying equipment (see below)
  • Access to a compute cluster (with GPGPUs) for High-Performance Computing

We are one of the best equipped Environmental Geophysics research groups in Europe. The majority of our equipment was acquired by a successful bid for SRIF funding from HEFCE in 2003.
