1) GEOTOM resistivimeter

Resistivimetric measurements near Lacul Stiucii (Transilvanian Plain), Somesul Mic Valley (Jucu), Siret Valley (Liteni)-the results are published in Catena, Geomorphology (submitted). (Fig. 1,2,3)


2) Picarro L2130i CRDS spectrometer

Precise measurement of δ18O and δD in water. Can be used both in laboratory and fieldwork applications in hidrology, palaeoclimatology, authentication of products – 2 dissertation thesis (PhD students Carmen Badaluta and Viorica Nagavciuc)-the results are about to be published in international journals. (Fig. 4,5,6)


3) Total station LEICA – precise topographic surveys (palaeochannels cross sections, active bars within channels, gullies) – results already published in Catena, Geomorphology, Revista de Geomorfologie, Georeview (Fig. 7,8,9)


4) Physico-chemical analysis laboratory equipped with LOI oven, oven, analytical balance, particle size analyzer and shaker for granulometry analysis, freezer for samples, glassware, various instruments – for PhD students activities (PhD student Delia Robu in the picture) and master students. (Fig. 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17)


5) Sonde diverse Eijelkam, carte Munselle, carotare in teren, granulometrie Wolman, pregatirea probelor – rezultate publicate (Catena, Geomorphology) si in curs de publicare (Earth Surface Landform and Processes, Quaternary Sciences Review, volum in Springer). (Fig. 14, 15, 16, 17)

6) Geomorphological mapping (Fig. 18,19)

7) Various core drills from Eijkelkamp, Munselle color system book, field coring, Wolman granulometry, preparing samples – results publishe in Geomorphology and Catena and under review (Earth Surface and Processes, Quaternary Sciences Review, in Springer)

8) Autolaboratory LOGAN MCV – support for all fieldtrips in our research projects (geomorphological cartography, resistivimetric measurements, subfossil trunks sampling, drillings, transport samples and research staff)(Fig. 22)
