The laboratory features basic infrastructures for paleomagnetic, rock magnetic and anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility studies. In this laboratory, investigation of the behaviour of the Earth’s magnetic field, rock formation and deformational processes linked to tectonics, as well as, paleogeography and paleoenvironment is performed.
