The Fluid and Rock Processes Laboratory Cluster does research to identify, measure and quantify the complex geological and environmental processes that are essential for the efficient utilisation of natural resources and underground spaces.
Explore the Fluid and Rock Processes Laboratory Cluster
The Geomicrobiology Laboratory investigates microbiological processes associated with geological materials and how they impact on the environment.
Hydrates and Ices Laboratory
The BGS Hydrate and Ices Laboratory is a specialised facility used to study the behaviour of gas hydrates within sediments.
This laboratory is used to study chemical reactions between fluids and rocks under conditions found in the top few kilometres of the Earth’s crust.
Transport Properties and Fracture Physics Research Laboratories
Research in these laboratories focuses on understanding fluid (water, gas and solutes) movement and rock deformation in the subsurface.
